"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” – Kofi Annan

Education is the gateway to freedom for every individual surviving the scorns of unequal society. Aarohan, in its twelfth year of modest but meaningful existence, presents a living example of supporting children to realise their dreams through education. It provides a ladder to paint their dreams in the sky and create space and identity in the society.

How can Aarohan save little Snehlata Tudu’s dreams?

Snehlata Tudu, a seven year old girl from Laxmiposi of Odissa wants to study and explore the world her own way. Here, going to a school is a distant dream. Laxmiposi in Mayurbhangj District of Odissa is a small remote hamlet in the tribal belt of east cost of India. About 57% of the people of this area are tribal and their socio-economic conditions are lamentable.

Being isolated, considerable problems are encountered with regard to logistics arrangements, adequ acy of civic infrastructure and facilities and even local language is a barrier to make them aware of the social issues. Conditions are so poor that a seven year old boy named Mumru was killed for eating the meal left for his sister.

Aarohan since 2012, aims to help the tribal children and the community through imparting education and to fight with health issues and malnutrition. Our mission is to help 60 tribal children, who are fighting with hunger and are not able to attend schools, through education and awareness programmes, so that they can integrate with the mainstream society.

Here’s how you can help us make an impact:

Aarohan needs helping hands in the form of small contributions to develop a dream school for these tribal children where they can get education and fulfill their dreams. This will ensure that no child is deprived of the basic necessities. You can contribute by donating here and sharing the campaign page on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, email, Whatsapp about this unique school so that your friends and family can learn about it and come forward to support.

Your contribution will aid in bringing to life the dreams of 60 tribal children.
