Atma snapshot in 2013

Bring in the Holiday Season with Atma !

We would also like to wish all of our supporters, friends and well-wishers Happy Holidays! See a snapshot through images -

We are excited to share that Atma will be launching two new projects with some of our portfolio organisations in the upcoming months!

Sustainable employment for vulnerable young women: Atma recently received a grant from the Government of Canada as part of the Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives in India. Thanks to their generous support we will be able to reach out to young women from low-income communities. In collaboration with Zaya and Sahyog, Atma will train and equip them to become high quality community based teachers and librarians. The trainings will include:

English Training

Entrepreneurship Training

Teacher Training :

  • Community Library Management (for 10 women)- participants will learn about the Hippocampus Grow by Reading Programme.
  • Maths Teaching (for 10 women)- participants will learn how to use the Zaya Lab technology including classroom set-up and teaching methodologies. 


Leveraging Technology for Education: Thanks to the support of our International Fundraising Chapter- Atma Netherlands, Atma has received a grant from ING Foundation as part of the ING Charity Fund for Employee. This grant will fund our project, " Leveraging Technology for Education." Through this project, Atma in collaboration with Zaya will help select portfolio organisations to integrate Zaya labs in their classrooms.  Zaya lab uses tablet devices, teachers, and peer learning to create a blended learning experience that integrates technology with the traditional teaching-learning process!

Atma Soles

With the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2014 around the corner, all the Atma Soles have been training hard and going the extra mile to raise funds for Atma's cause of Quality education.

Says Danique Lodewijks, "I've been passionate about Atma since June 2006 when I arrived in Mumbai for the first time. Back then I had the opportunity to meet Lee and see the great work Atma is doing, the difference it makes and the passion of the people have been an inspiration ever since. I am excited to finally be able to join the Atma Marathon team and after months of training I will run the Marathon on 19th January 2014!"
