The Learning Foundation – Padhenge, Likhenge was an idea which came in mind of the founder of this NGO, Mrs. Celine David, 14 years ago. During that time, she had an inner calling regarding the growth and development of various children who are needy. To save their childhood, she started a centre of remedial classes as well as child welfare. By God’s grace and the support of her fellow companions, that inner calling and the waves of life’s lessons gave shape to “The Learning Foundation – Padhenge Likhenge”.
This foundation is a platform for children with lesser means whose parents are marginalised workforce, living in the periphery of Gurugram. Providing quality education, study materials and proper importance to the children education is the main priority of this foundation. Education is the most vital part of a child’s life. The poverty and other unwanted barriers should not become the hurdle in child’s educational and mental health. Keeping this mission in mind, The Learning Foundation – Padhenge Likhenge members serve nationwide and give hands in the growth of the unprivileged and poor children.
Education is most powerful catalyst for a proper social transformation. It cannot be denied. So many children in this society are unable to gain this privilege to build their social life. Most of the kids are the students of government schools and other mushrooming private schools. But there are some children who never get a chance to take admission in schools. This foundation gives hand to build a new present for a successful future for those children. As learning is imperative, it should not be missed in anyone’s life. Then why should the small kids stay away from this beautiful gift?
Realizing this, The Learning Foundation – Padhenge Likhenge, an NGO in Gurugram, beginning in the corridors of education, adopted a lifecycle approach of regular attendance and discipline along with covering kid’s school uniform, their basic language skills, maths & environment. Apart from this educational skills, this foundation focus on the need-based skills of children such as personality development, career counselling, health care, cultural events along with sponsoring fees, notebooks and study materials. However there are miles to go and more minds to capture for a better tomorrow.
