The Mehta Family Foundation is proud to work with our partner Manav Sadhna to enhance the education and lives of the underprivileged dalit children. At the Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India is a hostel school for children.
This is a residential and after school program for children in the first through seventh grades. The children attend a government school across the street. At the Ashram they receive food, a place to live and supplemental education.
These children otherwise would have no stable place to live. Their parents are at best nomadic and are trying to get their children an education to improve their chances of a better life.
In partnership with the Mehta Family Foundation, the hostel will now provide a much improved teaching environment though the addition of full time teachers. In addition, the support will also fund the needs of the children both for food and housing.
The Mehta Family Foundation is looking forward to improving the outcome for the lives of these children.
