Atma strengthens and leverages high potential education non-government organisations to help overcome India’s education deficit. We believe that innovative NGOs can lead the way in reforming education but faced with a severe lack of financial and human resources they are unable to realise their true potential. This is why despite the existence of over 1,500 education NGOs in Mumbai alone, gaps in education persist. Education NGOs that are selected to be a part of Atma’s portfolio receive hands-on support and guidance in both management and education to become high impact organisations. Support from Atma typically lasts three years before the organisation graduates from the Atma program.
