Atma provides strategic solutions to help education NGOs scale
  • Crisis: Faced by a lack of resources and expertise, high-potential education organisations are often unable to maximise their impact. Atma helps NGOs become bigger, better and stronger by helping them solve their daily operational challenges and plan for their future growth.
  • Programs: Atma was founded in 2007 to support and strengthen education NGOs in the Mumbai and Pune. a) Atma developed the Accelerator Programme which consists of a 3 year partnership designed to resolve the organisational challenges their partner NGOs are facing, thus allowing them to become better, stronger and more sustainable. b) Set up in November 2016, Gati is a consortium of Atma that aims to develop and disseminate best practice and address mutual challenges in the education for persons with disabilities. c) Atma has a Volunteering Programme providing talented candidates across the world to apply their skills in a challenging work environment. d) Atma has worked with various NGOs and social enterprises for more than 8 years. With our expertise, we have been able to build a comprehensive library of Resources under Atma Network to help NGOs which are beyond our reach.
  • Outcome: Atma has worked with 50+ educational NGOs and reached out to over 71,000 beneficiaries from the communities in the Mumbai and Thane region as of April, 2017. 1200 hours of support provided per year by the Atma team members to their partner NGO leaders. Over the last 3 years, Atma has worked with 14 organisations in the special education sector, who have collectively reached over 3500 children with special needs.
