Education being the key to
knowledge, character and development, it is imperative to make it available to
all children without any discrimination whatsoever. Hence, quality education
should not be limited to only the privileged class but must be made available
and accessible even for educating
underprivileged students too. Education being a struggle for
underprivileged rural children, the e1e1 Foundation steps in to provide them
with the opportunity of receiving quality, values-based education. An NGO working for education, the e1e1 Foundation nurtures an
education system that incorporates the regular academic curriculum, sports and
other extra-curricular activities, along with inculcation of the universal
human values of love, brotherhood, empathy, unity and gratitude.

Your support is crucial
The e1e1 Foundation believes that
their vision is attainable only through a collective collaboration between the
Society (Samaja), the Government (Sarkara) and the Institution (Samstha). To
create a harmonious coherence between the three, this NGO working for education maintains complete financial
transparency, allowing benefactors to understand how their investment is being
put to optimal use.
In addition, when you donate for education, you enter the
Foundation’s ‘circle of generosity’ i.e., when you educate a child, that child
grows up imbibing the value of giving back to the society by supporting the
education of another needy child, so on and so forth. Donate for education with the e1e1 Foundation and witness the
change you have always wished to see!
