Aarohan Learning Centre – Facilitating Learning Among Underprivileged Communities
Aarohan Learning Centre is a Delhi based non-profit dedicated to empowering those from lesser privileged backgrounds by providing education as well as skill development. Aarohan started in 2012 with teaching tailoring skills to a small batch of women from the local community in Shahadara in East Delhi, and soon expanded to include a learning centre to provide non formal education to their children as well.
The objectives of Aarohan Learning Centre are two-fold i.e. to grow as an after-school learning centre as well as a skill-building centre by running multiple batches to reach more and more students and women from surrounding areas; and to help initiate independent micro enterprises by the women upon completion of training and help sell their produce through multiple outlets like exhibitions and ecommerce ventures.
Aarohan Learning Centre has helped many children, studying in nearby Government Schools, improve their learning skills, academic performance and overall development using multiple tools and methods of education.
Similarly, Aarohan Learning Centre has impacted the lives of many women positively through imparting skills in tailoring, designing and embroidery. Most of these women have become self-sufficient with stitching from home, while a few have even gone on to start their own boutique businesses or training centres in their own communities.
Sarayu Trust is committed to supporting Aarohan Learning Centre to help bring about real, tangible change at the grass root level in the areas of Education and Community Empowerment, thereby fulfilling its mission of Reclaiming, Rebuilding and Revitalizing the Indian Civilization.
