Mangalam Education Foundation was founded on the tenet that a community which values education and respects women can change its course for the better.
India is emerging as one of the growth engines of the world, it also has its share of poverty and displacement, rendering a large number of children vulnerable. We see an increasing number of children of homeless families on the streets; most of them deprived of education and basic entitlement in the slums and colonies of the poor and displaced; eventually ending up as child labour working in hazardous conditions or victims of trafficking.
Mangalam Education Foundation reaches out to these disadvantaged children within our society and strive to meaningfully engage these children who are denied their childhood, create conditions wherein they could regain their childhood, help them secure education and develop as equal citizens of this country. In this effort we engage with civil society groups, government authorities and corporate groups (industry and business).
The key focus of our portfolio is on the education of children in the age group of 3-18, women’s literacy, tribal education, and improving access to education for minority communities, through their thematic and regional initiatives.
Ensuring quality education for children, especially from those marginalized backgrounds is the central goal of our foundation’s portfolio. Furthermore, we provide individual scholarships to assist students under its Individual Grant Programme for Education.
