Saksham Foundation aims to make underprivileged people Saksham i.e. self-sufficient and self-dependent. This is achieved by providing them with education, healthcare and conducting community development drives and activities. Two such programs are ‘Pahel’ which helps young children from the slums to fight odds and gain education in a fun and interactive way and the other is ‘Lakshya’ which aims to make women more empowered by giving functional literacy. Saksham Foundation engages volunteers to do everything from coordinating to conducting the classes. These volunteers are trained as well as provided with certificates as a way to appreciate their efforts.
