NGO Profile :
The Avehi Public Charitable (Educational) Trust is a non-profit dedicated to continuing education and critical social intervention through use of media resources. Avehi initiated the Avehi Abacus Project (AAP) in 1990 which believes in improving and strengthening the public education system. They reach out to the marginalized sections of society and impact mainstream policy on education.

AAP has developed three integrated packages of educational materials for students and teachers in the formal and non-formal streams of learning. These are Sangati, Manthan and Saath Saath, to supplement and enrich existing school curriculum, and not replace it.

  • Sangati (Togetherness/Harmony): AAP has developed a three-year enrichment curriculum package Sangati comprising a series of six teaching-learning kits with interlinked themes for Std V, VI and VII. The Sangati curriculum is thought-provoking and interactive, attempting to make school education relevant and vibrant. Sangati is being used in all (900+) Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai schools (MCGM) and has reached 10,000+ teachers and 250,000+ children since last thirteen years.
  • Manthan (Churning): AAP has developed Manthan – a foundation course for trainee teachers enrolled for the Diploma in Teacher Education (DTEd). It is currently being used in 21 colleges in Raigad and Thane District.
  • Saath Saath (Living together in Harmony): Responding to the increasing awareness about gender parity and ironically, the growing violence against the female sex, the Avehi Abacus Project has developed a kit on Gender titled Saath Saath, to generate respect for individuals irrespective of their biological sex.

This path-breaking, sustained work has been taken serious note of by the National and State level policy making bodies. Members of AAP have played a key role in shaping the syllabus and textual material developed at National and State levels. The material developed by the organization has been integrated and used as a reference during this process.
