Advaith Foundation's dream is to transform the lives of thousands of poor and deprived children into lives filled with health, happiness, promise and achievement.
We believe that giving them access to quality education is the first and most important step towards this endeavor. Ankur , the children's home, is the first project of Advaith Foundation where we provide a home and facilities that help support & supplement the education.
Education: At Ankur, we try to make education a joyful process. Children attend classes at The Samhita Academy, which provides excellent teaching and quality education.
Ankur children are on par with the fee-paying students of the school.
