The importance and impact of NGOs in all spheres are very noticeable and admirable, especially in the education sector. There are many NGOs in urban as well as rural areas that are dedicated to bringing education to the children who aren’t privileged to attend the regular schools.  

Over years we’ve heard of many individuals who are dedicatedly working to educate the children of India. In today’s day and age, education has become a major tool for leading a good life. Primary education is the right of every child and they all deserve it.  


Buniyaad is dedicated to building a better tomorrow by not only educating the children but also by training the teachers to teach in most effective and efficient ways. Buniyaad is extremely dedicated to the faculty of skill development and constant upscaling, therefore they offer English conversation courses to people from underprivileged backgrounds. “Educating young minds, strengthening roots, and laying foundation for a better tomorrow is our main moto,” says, SaiGita Narayan, one of the founders and volunteers at Buniyaad.

Education is every child’s birthright, Tarang’s moto says it all. Tarang is dedicated to bringing quality education to every child to brighten their future. They have very well understood the complexities of underprivileged households and have branched out in various ways to help the children get the education they deserve. They have got four major projects, Project Shiksha, which is an established school, where they provide the best education to the underprivileged children. They’ve also established a place of orphans to stay and educate themselves.  

Project Lakshya is dedicated to developing English, Math and computer skills in children. The training for the same happens only during the weekends where the best technology and skillsets are taught to the children.  

There are many who drop out of school after completing their primary education because they need to help around to run the household. After understanding this Tarang started Project Daayitva which is dedicated to bringing the best quality education to the night schools.  

Lack of money and guidance is a major obstacle in many households in India which holds back even the smartest of children from pursuing higher education. Project Aadhar focuses on volunteers and donors pitching in to fund the dream of one child at a time and creating a better future for the children of India.
