about advaith foundation

Advaith Foundation

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.

We believe that every child has the right to an education that enriches the mind, builds character and broadens horizons through knowledge. It is our mission to make such education accessible to children from different walks of life, with the effects cascading and resounding further in the generations to come.

Ankur, the first project of Advaith Foundation, was born out of a dream to provide opportunities for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The Samhita Academy is another venture of the Advaith Foundation, committed to the cause of education. It aims at providing quality education while inculcating an inclusive spirit in its children, a tolerance that will help them appreciate the differences in others. In keeping with this spirit, Samhita Academy will also enrolls children of Ankur.
