  NGO Goals

 

 

Ark Foundation is a creation of a group of teachers and research scholars from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, who felt the need to use their education for betterment of society. Observing the lack of effective schools in slum areas so close to their own academic institution, the group was motivated to make a small beginning to use their knowledge and skills to provide learning centers for slum children.

  Achievements

 

They began their work in 1995 in Kataila Village, Uttar Pradesh, and in 2002 they have programmes running in Delhi, Kataila and Ranchi. The organisation was formally registered under the Society Registration Act (1860) in 2002.

  Summary

 

Ark Foundation is a group of young people, many of them alumni of Jawaharlal Nehru University , New Delhi, who are motivated to take education to the doorstep of the needy children. They understand the difficulty many children have in traveling from one village to another to attain school lessons and are aware that for many children education is secondary to contributing to economic activities at home. It is with this in mind that the Foundation began its Education Centres with the idea that “if children cannot go to school, we will bring school to them”. They have inspired several volunteers to teach them in Mubarakpur slum of Delhi, Jamalpur of Aligarh and Kataila of Ghazipur. Dr. Shaheen Ansari, a Ph.D. from JNU, is the convenor of the Foundation.
