About the NGO
Hari Sankar Foundation
Currently 140 children are enrolled in four of their study centres in the Aarey colony of Mumbai, who get free after-school tuition and nutrition.
Kruthika Devi S, a BSc student from Coimbatore, is one of the many engineering students the foundation has supported. The taxi-driver’s daughter was awarded complete financial support for the second and third years of college and after graduating in April 2018, secured a job at Cognizant as a software developer.
The foundation also emphasises the empowerment of women through education and skills development and the formation of self-help groups to promote financial literacy and independence.
Take 38-year-old Leena Khandu Garud who joined a self-help group in January 2018 - which gave her enough confidence to start a small business. She enrolled in a government-run tailor training programme and was provided a sewing machine to practice her dream.
Now she is contributing to the family income along with her husband - a much-needed financial boost for their family of four. Plus she feels more valued.
Leena, one of 106 women who are part of 10 SHGs run by the organisation in Mumbai, says: ‘Thank you Hari Sankar Foundation for supporting, guiding and helping me get this additional income source.”
This initiative, taken by Kusters Netherlands and the late Hari Sankar’s colleagues, is inspirational.
Support them to create equal opportunities for all.
