Ashwini Charitable Trust is a registered NGO that educates and empowers underprivileged children from the slums of Ulsoor and supports them till they are gainfully employed. There are many children who struggle with education because of economic constraints and other social issues, and need help in overcoming the difficulties they face when it comes to learning. ACT takes up the responsibility of providing such children with the necessary assistance in their education, and also encourages them to polish their skills and talent.


Since the 3rd of August 2020, Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) has been connecting our Teachers and Volunteers with the Children of the Trust on Whatsapp for online classes. Our partner organisation U&I has also been conducting online classes for our ACT children using pre-recorded videos. LifeBeyondSchool Foundation has donated 5 tablets shared between 18 of our children to study on learning Apps. Siva and Royan Foundation have donated 20 tablets. Bridgin organisation is conducting online classes for 21 of our children on foundational English and fundamental math on the weekends


Since schools are all closed due to Covid-19, one of our main challenges is access to technology and the internet. Most children don’t have even a phone of their own. Usually, only one parent has a smartphone. This becomes impractical when the parent requires the phone for work and simply isn’t at home.


We have over 20 volunteers who are currently teaching 75 of our children. So there are 120 hours of teaching going on per week. As and when we get volunteers, we are trying to reach as many children as we can. We are also trying to reach out to organizations/ people who can help us in getting/ donating smartphones with data, to help in our online teaching program.


We appeal you to help us enable 150 children to gain access to online classes for the next six months, until the end of the academic year. Without intenet access, the children will discontinue their education.


Any contribution from you shall be a leap forward for a child under ACT in achieving their dreams and also in becoming self-reliant. We do hope that we are successful in achieving our target, and this can be done only with your constant support and help. Please donate generously and help us in spreading the word, for your small contribution can bring about a BIG change in the lives of the children at Ashwini Charitable Trust.
