Atma Report Card

Dear Donor,

Welcome to the Atma Report Card: designed to feature in-depth financial and partnership updates for October-December 2012.

Atma addresses the lack of capacity in India to effectively provide Quality Education to all children. 

Consider these statistics:

  • 20% of India’s poor have no access to education.
  • 86% have no access to technical and vocational training;
  • 45% drop out before eighth grade.
  • By 2015, 65% of Indian population will be youth.
  • By 2050, 50% of the world’s illiterate will be in India.

In the face of these startling statistics, Atma aims to bridge the education gap through collaborative partnerships.  

The Atma Model is a three phase relationship-based intervention which helps organisations move beyond their day-to-day resource constraints.

Atma helps NGOs to break the cycle of insufficient  funds, staff and time. This allows Atma Partners to deliver more Quality Education to the children and young adults they serve. The Atma model is defined by four key services: consultancy, skilled volunteers, training and advocacy.


Consultancy helps Atma Partners to take a step back from day-to-day challenges and think about long term goals. Atma helps partners break big goals into small, achievable steps. In this way, big dreams become manageable.

Skilled Volunteers

Every organisation requires experts across areas of finance, product design or sales. This is true for businesses and NGOs alike. Atma provides Atma Partners with skilled volunteers to do specific projects that result in concrete, measureable results. These skilled volunteers support Atma Partners in taking on the challenges faced in running and growing an organisation.

Training & Workshops

Atma Trainings and Workshops are offered based on the unique needs of Atma Partners. These trainings are generally focused at the management and staff of an NGO, to build skills and competency within that organisation. Workshops and trainings are for Atma Partners and other NGOs.


Atma’s advocacy services focus around creating a platform for awareness, resource-sharing and exchange between NGOs.

With an increase in number of Partners, we will be focusing on key updates from a few partnerships in our Report Cards.

Kindly check the attachment for a detailed report on our current partnerships. 

Thanks and regards,

Atma Mumbai
