Prodh Shiksha Abhiyaan

Project Prodh Shiksha Abhiyaan- “A Ray of Hope”
Project Prodh Shiksha Abhiyaan is a national level program of National Organisation for Social Empowerment to provide basic education to underprivileged children.

We believe that in order to address any problem of the society such as Rights, Health, Development or Environment, there’s no better place to start than in the walkway of education.

The core Team of this project was present to witness the joy of the orphan/poor children at Chatravas Arya Vidya Mandir, New Delhi. Post this event we see us one step closer to achieving our ambitious dreams.

Our mission is to give each children an inspiring place to study and progress. We were highly impressed with the support provided to us by our volunteers.
