Atma creates partnerships with dynamic organisations that work in education in Mumbai, India.These organisations are dedicated to creating quality educational programs for underprivileged children and young adults, but face multiple resource constraints in terms of funding, staff members and expertise.Through consultancy, skilled volunteers, training and advocacy, Atma increases the capacity of its partner organisations to provide quality education.
Despite growing investment in education in India, 25% of the population is still illiterate. Amidst this, Atma engages in partnerships with NGOs that focus on creating and improving education in India. These organizations face challenges in funding, staffing, leadership,resources and manpower. Atma works with them to develop every system in their organization, allowing them to become strong and sustainable and better deliver their programs to their beneficiaries.
The skills, resources and holistic support gained through the Atma Partnerships Programme enables partner organizations to build a strong foundation and thus have a greater impact on their beneficiaries. Atma's support enables its partner organizations to increase their reach and raise their standards, effectively contributing to the development sector as a whole.
Atma's beneficiaries are NGOs. Atma Partnerships serve to create strong and sustainable organizations. By addressing the needs of growth of organizations, these organizations are able to grow their programs and reach exponentially more beneficiaries. This results in higher numbers of beneficiaries and a higher quality of education to beneficiaries. Higher levels of education in children translates to a general heightened awareness in the communities.
"The Atma Partnership has helped us define our work and enhance our programs, constantly requiring us to reflect on the outcomes and set up processes that help our efficiency." - Novela Corda, Executive Director of CHIP(Graduated Atma Partner)
