Our Vision

Aboli Foundation aims to improve the level of education and well-being of students in government- run primary schools in Maharashtra by;

  • improving access to quality resources for students and teachers
  • implementing healthcare services within the school district
  • improving the health education within the district schools
  • making sure that the school has maintained the integrity of the buildings
  • hosting entertainment and enrichment programs at the schools

How We Do It

Currently, we are a local organization working to improve our community through lower-scaled initiatives. We have only worked in the Maharashtra state thus far, and we have carried out two campaigns at the Temki Paada school.

Our campaigns at Temki Paada have involved interacting with the children, teaching them yoga and the English language, playing community-building and skill-based games with them, and hosting guest speakers to teach them about different issues.

Besides this, we have also made it a priority to better equip the school to teach the children. We have done this by donating resources like books, posters and hygiene products. We are also currently building a new wash basin for children to wash their hands with more ease. Lastly, we have also invested in repainting the school and adding storage shelves where students can keep their bags and books.

We began our work with the school in December 2016. We decided to start our first Aboli campaign there because while growing up, we would often see the school on our summer trips to India. We asked our grandmother, who was a teacher in the secondary government school in the village, about the school. She told us that the school was new but didn’t have many resources.

Thus, we decided to begin our work here. Read more about the campaigns Aboli Foundation has done at Temki Paada.
