The Ajit Foundation run some project like free school Education, Bhatkyanchi Shala,Setu Shala, Akshar Initiative etc. we need donations. So support the cause and be a part of this noble work.

You can help AF by:

  • Being a Sponsor
  • Donating a fixed amount for arranging prizes for various competitions or achievements
  • Spending some of your precious time with the children. We would love to have experts from various fields to spend some of their precious time with these children. We especially urge counsellors, doctors, teachers, health instructors, educationists and artists to come forward and be a part of these children's lives.
  • For most of us a festival means time for joy, time to spend with family. Unfortunately, for CSWs this is a peak ‘business’ time, and they ignore their children completely. Attendance at the school is highest during festivals because mothers don’t want to have the kids at home. We need volunteers during these times to take the kids out. Don’t you think the kids should enjoy the festivals too?
  • English and Maths are two subjects where we need extra help in teaching. Also, the kids live in bad neighbourhoods and use foul language without knowing it. They also suffer from lack of expression. Volunteers who can spend some time to help us address these issues are most welcome!
  • Be a surrogate father/mother to a child. The children love it a lot if someone comes to meet them. They feel special and look forward to it.
