asdasd About Advaith asdasd About Ankur asdasd Donate
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.

The trust was registered in July 2004, and is based out of Bangalore, Karnataka, India.
 
‘Ankur’, meaning sapling, is the name of the children’s comprehensive residential education programme set up by the Advaith Foundation in 2004.

For the children of the underprivileged sections of society, education has historically been neither a priority nor a pleasure.
Donations are accepted either in cash or kind. Donations in kind can be either new or unused clothes / toys / books.

All donations to Ankur are exempted from tax, under 80-G of the Income Tax Act of the GOI. Donors can also sponsor, from a range of options available.
