Our impact thus far

Since 2018, Shraddha Maanu Foundation has impacted the lives of 2000 underprivileged children across Tamil Nadu, many of them first-generation learners. A curriculum focused on Foundational Literacy & Numeracy (FLN) , that incorporates child centric principles, nurtures the cognitive, moral, emotional, imaginative, social or spiritual abilities of a child has lead to providing them with a holistic and multidisciplinary learning environment. A happy and nurturing environment,with an exposure to values is essential in building a positive self-image, resilience and self-esteem in children.
