With a vision and mission to have Happy Empowered Children in slums, Sarthak Foundation reaches out children in urban slums, villages and on construction sites and changes their lives through education and skills.
We work in the largest state of India - Uttar Pradesh.
The issue that we are trying to address is removal of abject poverty in slums through education and skilling of children.
We become a part of the community by setting up permanent Yellow Rooms and create a sustainable transformational environment for all the children in that vicinity. We work for them becoming happy, gender equal, empathetic, educated, sensitive and ethical human beings.
