Who we are

We are a non-profit organisation seeking to end educational discrimination against underprivileged children and socio-economic discrimination against educated women. Our methodology is two-fold:

Help female college graduates attain meaningful employment through teaching-training.

Enable lower-income children to access quality after-school education to keep up with their privileged peers.

Why We Do What We Do

Women from lower socio-economic backgrounds swim against the tide - juggling household work with education, resisting cultural norms, and working twice as hard as most men - to obtain a college degree. Yet, the majority of these women are relegated to performing unpaid household work or domestic work in others' homes.

Meanwhile, children from the same background - many of them first-generation learners - struggle to attend and benefit from school, and continue to fall behind academically and intellectually.

Our Goal

We, at Shraddha Maanu Foundation, aim to provide every underprivileged child joyful learning from dependable teachers; and every underprivileged educated woman the agency and empowerment to gain pride from her work.

We aspire to mainstream education further through the VIPASANA microcenters and Edupreneur Support Centers (ESC) to positively impact the lives of 500 women and 5000 children by 2025.
