The Manav Mandir Ashram, located at Sarai Kale Khan, New Delhi provides a home for destitute children and there are currently 36 children and young adults homed there.
1E has been supporting the ashram for almost 15 years since taking on responsibility for funding the children’s education in a private school. The first ever children from the ashram to go onto further education, started university in 2012. Sushant, who graduated from the University of Delhi with a History degree, is currently preparing to take the exams for the Indian Administrative Service, the premier administrative civil service of the Government of India. Gagan, who has been studying for his B. Tech in Computer Science at the Greater Noida Institute of Technology since 2012, is in his final year and due to graduate in 2017. We are extremely proud of Sushant’s and Gagan’s achievements and hope to see many more children through further education over the coming years. The children are bright and motivated, and have the determination to do well at school given the right opportunities.
We have recently employed a child psychologist to help with the pastoral care of the children, to provide counselling and also help guide them through their education and future career choices. We want the children to be able to achieve the best outcomes possible.
