An NGO comprises individuals and institutions with core social and cooperative goals instead of commercial goals that are totally or extensively independent from the government. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are not-for-profit organizations that engage indigenous members to help develop on a local, national, and worldwide scale. NGOs, or non-governmental organizations, are citizen groups that build awareness and influence policy. They include independent cooperatives, community-based organizations, societies, and numerous other institutions.
NGOs aim to strengthen and improve the socioeconomically and politically weaker parts of the community to have equal rights and opportunities. Such groups can help develop society towards a more advanced and improved way of life and existence.
NGOs have several responsibilities. One of the primary responsibilities is to assist underprivileged people in growing and improving their lifestyle and economic situation. Many well-known non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in India are always trying to improve the education of disadvantaged people. We have discussed the Best NGOs for Education in India in this article.
Teach for India
Teach for India’s founder, Shaheen Mistri, believes that only a people’s movement can secure adequate education for children. So each year since 2009, Teach for India has identified and recruited outstanding people to serve as fellows. Fellows make a two-year commitment to teach in low-income schools. They promote kids’ overall development while also influencing the school and community through their efforts.
The Akshaya Patra Foundation
The Akshaya Patra Foundation, founded in 2000 and located in Bengaluru, encourages underprivileged children’s right to an education. As an implementing partner of the government’s midday meal initiatives, it works on a public-private partnership model to offer fresh and healthy food to students in government and government-aided schools. It intends to feed 5 million children by 2025, to ensure that no child is denied education due to hunger.
Azim Premji Foundation
Azim Hashmi Premji, the founder of the Azim Premji Foundation, is a great believer in the need for a robust education system to sustain the nation’s economic growth and lift millions of Indian citizens out of poverty. To improve the quality of education in rural regions, The Azim Premji Foundation works with almost 3,00,000 government-run schools, most of which are located in rural India across six states: Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, and Uttarakhand.
Educate Girls is also one of India’s top education non-governmental organizations that encourage and promote girls’ education in the country’s most distant, rural, and educationally disadvantaged areas. Educate Girls is now active in over 17,000 villages in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh. With the help of 14,000+ volunteers, Educate Girls addresses this large-scale issue by raising awareness among parents and the rural community about the significance of girls’ empowerment and education.
