Aseema Charitable Trust is a Mumbai based non-governmental organization with a mission to equip children from marginalized communities with high quality, value based education enabling development of their limitless potential. Over the past 23 years, Aseema has worked extensively with children living in slum communities in Mumbai and remote tribal communities in Igatpuri.
In Mumbai, Aseema works in partnership with the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai(MCGM) to create centres of excellence within the public education system. Aseema has adopted the English medium sections of the Pali Chimbai Municipal School, Santacruz (W) Municipal School and Kherwadi Municipal School. In each of these schools, Aseema supports the MCGM by providing teachers who are oriented to Aseema’s child friendly approach, making the learning environment stimulating and safe and creating a culture that respects the child and promotes learning.
In Igatpuri (Maharashtra), Aseema has set up Aseema's Bal Shaikshanik Kendra for Tribal Children in the remote village of Awalkheda. The school caters to children from Pre-Primary section to Standard X. Over the past few years, Aseema has been invited to offer training and support to other organizations working in the field of education. Through these and other initiatives, Aseema reaches out to over 4400 children annually.
Aseema's Art classes are a force multiplier in their efforts to holistically develop underprivileged children. The designs that the children make during these art classes are then used on all Aseema products. Punya is proud to have Aseema as its partner.
