Freedom through education

Education can benefit individuals and our society at large. Access to education at an early age goes
a long way in accelerating a nation’s progress. Simply put, education can free us from our limitations and
open up amazing new possibilities. Advaith Foundation was started keeping this promise in mind.

Advaith’s HISTORY

Born out of the conviction that quality education is the cornerstone of all developmental progress in society, Advaith Foundation was formed to promote philanthropic ventures in the field of education and research.

(As on Sep 2016)

Initially, Ankur functioned through individual homes in the city, each with 10-12 children and a house-mother. Between 2005 and 2008, we grew from one such home to three; and in 2009 July, we moved to hostels in our own campus, off Bannerghatta Road – a joyful day for Ankur!



Ankur is always happy to have volunteers who can contribute to Ankur by spending time with the children for various activities.

Transform the lives of poor
children into lives filled with
health, happiness, promise
and achievement.
