About Us

Padhaai Trust ® is a Registered Public Charitable Trust whose social activism focus is to provide educational assistance to children who desire to study but lack the economic resources. Padhaai® advocates the concept of inclusive education as propagated by UNESCO.  Inclusive education is based on the right of all learners to a quality education that meets basic learning needs and enriches lives.   The initial geographical focus is Bangalore and surrounding villages and semi-urban areas.

The educational assistance offered can be in the form of scholarships, sponsoring school fees, help in procuring notebooks, textbooks, uniforms, school stationery and help set up libraries.

Padhaai’s aim is to bring together like-minded individuals and organizations who want to contribute to the educational upliftment of economically challenged children and channel their energy and resources to the truly deserving and needy children.  Padhaai’s role is to identify the recipients, disburse the resources and monitor the students’ progress.
