What do we need from you?
We raised 4.23 Lakhs last year. This year we are continuing our campaign to raise an additional INR 10 Lakhs which is a part of our total budget
to work with 400 parents in Delhi and the Sonipat District of Haryana. We are equipping parents with the knowledge and skills required to demand quality education.
What will the money be used for?
We conduct 10 formal interactions with each parent we work within a year Each of these interaction costs INR 250 per parent. The testimonial below exemplifies what do these sessions lead to.
Samarthya was co-founded in May 2016 to ensure every child gets a free and quality education as promised under the Right To Education Act (RTE Act).
As per a 2017 CAG report, only 8% schools comply with the basic yet mandatory norms and standards laid down in the Right To Education Act. We see a large scope and need for our work. You can read more about why Samarthya was started in this

We believe empowering parents/ communities at a school-level for governance and accountability is critical to the success of the movement towards quality education.
We are among the few organizations in India that are doing intensive work with School Management Committees (SMCs). These SMCs mandatorily consist of 75% parents and the main role of the SMC is to monitor the implementation of the Right To Education Act. Last year we worked with 14 SMCs in Delhi. This year apart from Delhi we have started work in Sonipat in partnership with the District Administration. We are currently incubated by Teach For India, UnLtd Delhi, and the Advaith Foundation.
In the short term, we enable parents to become accountability and governance partners in government schools.
In the long term, we help foster a demand for a free & quality education in low-income communities.
