Ajay, Garima, Gyan, Nishtha, Niraj, Swati and Yogesh, individuals from different professional fields, banded by ties of friendship and family, got together to start the Pokhrama Foundation in 2016. Coalescing around Ajay, who is from Pokhrama, the group has one thing in common: the education our parents often painstakingly gave us. Most of us had humble beginnings but it was education that fired our careers and our lives. With this understanding we began our journey of service, with Pokhrama, in Distt. Lakhisarai, Bihar. We gave ourselves the name Pokhrama Foundation.
Pokhrama Foundation started work in the field of education in Pokhrama in 2016 onwards. Our journey since has been exhilarating and moving and we have gone from giving scholarships to study in the “best” schools of the area (2016-2019), to running a school of our own from temporary premises (2019 onwards), to now moving into a sustainable 7 acres full-fledged campus. We have spread our wings wider and started a Learning Center to bring out-of-school children from in and around Pokhrama into schools. We have also initiated children led community outreach initiatives.
