• Pokhrama Foundation

    We run high quality institutions of social change in remote
    and underdeveloped parts of India. We work with children
    and their communities to create lasting impact.

  • Pokhrama Foundation Academy.

    The Academy provides transformative education to highly disadvantaged children.
    It is our firm belief: that which truly liberates is education.

  • Unlocking girl power

    We are committed to gender equality. We are getting more girls to school
    and keeping them there. Our girls are visible; they are leaders; they are heard.

  • Leadership

    Leadership is not power. It is service.
    Leadership+Critical Thinking+Solution Mindset=Changemaker.

  • Sustainability

    The ethos of environmental sustainability is translated to the way we build, we learn, work
    and play—in harmony with the natural environment.
    Harmony is a lesson learnt by living.

NO CHILD TOO FAR. NO COMMUNITY TOO REMOTE.

POKHRAMA FOUNDATION is a non-profit committed to bringing service projects in remote, rural and underdeveloped areas of India. Our aim is to make opportunity available to those most systemically disadvantaged. We do this by creating excellent institutions which are not just tokens of access but vehicles of real change.

Leadership is through service. Whether it is out-of-school-children or underutilization of government welfare schemes, specific issues are taken up and addressed.

Gender Equity

We bring more girls out of homes, away from chores and possible futures as under-age brides, into our school. Gender issues are raised and girls’ opinions are heard.

Sustainability

Our school is an environmentally sustainable campus. Water harvesting, solar energy and design to mitigate temperature extremes are the key features.

Our Children, Our Inspiration.

Pokhrama is a village with widespread poverty, no health - care center, no potable water, non -existent sanitation, erratic electricity supply, and widespread caste and gender discrimination. In this challenging environment we derive inspiration from our students whose positivity and resilience shines undiminished through all adversity.
