Lakshyam was founded in the year 2012 by a young social entrepreneur who further brought a group of like minded people together to contribute towards the betterment of society with focus on child education, holistic child development and women empowerment. We started this journey with a dream of creating a world where every child is showered with love, given opportunities for having a bright future, no child’s innocence is marred by the horrors of child labour, and a world where women’s well being is paid attention to and they’re empowered to sustain themselves and their family.
In India 35.2% of people living in Urban Areas reside in slums that are overpopulated, have lack of adequate water supply, sanitation, and security. Children of these slum dwellers often do not get access to basic education and instead have to start working to support their families. The statistics and the problem is the same in both rural or urban India.
We at Lakshyam vowed to put an end to this widespread violation of people’s fundamental rights, especially of women and children residing in the slums of India. We aim to empower them through education and employment by implementing models of development that are tailored according to the needs of the community.
We intend to empower and expand our family in the coming years. Our mission is to enroll more students to the formal schooling system, increase our reach of toy libraries, and upskill a new women community.
To work for economical, political and socially marginalized communities for their holistic advancement and implementing customized, effective, scalable and replicable models for community development
