"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Achievements

 

 

Completed the project with several make-shift schools, mobile library, mobile laboratory, metric melas (teaching kids/villagers to measure), vocational training, health camps, etc.

 

  Goals

 

 

We dream of a just society free from economic, social, and gender inequalities. Jagriti has taken up education and welfare of underprivileged children, as a step closer to making this dream a reality. They provide underprivileged children a very enjoyable education in formal subjects as well as give them a humanist perspective of their surroundings, so that they can understand and shape it. In education they incorporate rationality, secularism and gender equality. Keeping in mind their economic necessities, they are integrating vocational training and marketing skills into the curriculum.
