Atma Education Trust (Atma) was set up to help in capacity building and delivering quality education to children and young adults. Atma strengthens and leverages high potential education NGOs to help overcome India's education gap by helping NGOs to break the cycle of insufficient funds, staff and time.
Education NGOs that are selected to be a part of Atma's portfolio receive hands-on support and guidance in both management and education to become effective, productive and sustainable. Support from Atma typically lasts three years before the organisation graduates from the Atma program.
Atma’s services include:
Consultancy: This helps Atma Partners to take a step back from day-to-day challenges and think about long term goals. An Atma Partnerships coordinator meets with the Partner organisation on a weekly basis to develop strategic goals, and create plans to carry them out. Consultancy forms the baseline of Atma’s service offering: this hands-on, intensive support allows Partners to set big goals and achieve them.
Skilled Volunteers: Additional support from volunteers who are roped in to complete specific projects necessary for the growth of a Partner. Because of resource constraints in time and expertise, NGOs can often benefit from additional support. Atma brings in skilled volunteers at an appropriate time to complete specific projects that will support the growth of an organisation. Volunteers have developed teaching curriculums, designed websites, planned marketing campaigns, completed fundraising strategies, written HR manuals, verified accounting processes, launched blogs and filmed videos.
Training: Atma conducts regular training and workshops to develop the skill and competence of the management and staff of an NGO. These are based on the unique needs of Atma Partners.
Some of the NGOs associated with Atma are Mimaansa, Umang, Masoom, Muskan Foundation, Sahyog and Avanti Fellows.
