"A good education is a foundation for a better future.” – Elizabeth Warren

Education plays a crucial role in the growth and progress of communities across the world. The happiness and success of people depend on the foundation of rational education and learning. Young children also need emotional development along with education and grooming. As they grow up, they need to be equipped to solve problems as well as to know how to communicate their ideas and problems effectively. However, due to multiple reasons, many of the marginalized communities still don’t have access to basic or advanced learning resources. With the introduction of digital education, due to the lack of adequate digital means, the gap only seems to be widening for such children. To serve society by enabling quality education among such children.

Anganwadi Renovation

Anganwadis play an essential role at the rural level in providing pre-school education to children aged between 1 to 5. However, there are many Anganwadis with poor infrastructure in the remote villages of Gujarat. Such Anganwadis can revive, and their capacities can be enhanced through Private and Government sector partnerships. ‘NAND GHAR PROJECT’ is an initiative launched by the ICDS (Integrated Child Development Services) department of the Government is the first step towards supporting the basic need of health and education of children at the village level. At Astral Foundation, we reckon the importance of integrated child development specifically in rural and semi-urban areas and providing the children with necessary infrastructure. Astral Foundation has taken initiatives to renovate and upgrade the Anganwadis for the benefits of children residing in surrounding areas. The Anganwadis are instrumental in providing health, nutrition and immunization services to the children. The improved infrastructure with additional features like a fully constructed sitting area, storage, and sports equipment for children, clean toilet facilities, a ramp with railing for easy access for children with disabilities of the Anganwadis would help maintain hygiene and cleanliness and strengthen the integrated development of children.

Scholarship Project

Since its inception, Astral Foundation has laid special emphasis on providing education and has helped needy students in various possible ways. The majority of underprivileged children in our country are still deprived of good education and once they grow, they end up having limited employment options due to lack of education. To help such meritorious students, Astral Foundation has assisted to implement a scholarship program along with Vidyasaarathi, the education scholarship portal. Under the scholarship program, deserving students from the state of Gujarat who have enrolled for courses like B.E./B. Tech, B.Sc in Agriculture, and other undergraduate courses like B.A. will be able to fund their education and fulfil their career aspirations. This scholarship was available to anyone who has a minimum of 50% in his/her 10th or 12th Standard and whose parents have a family income of Rs. 5 lakh or below. Astral Foundation provided scholarships to needy students in Dholka, Ahmedabad, Kalol, and Gandhinagar in the state of Gujarat.
