Education is one of the first and foremost stepping stones in nation building. India is committed to providing free and compulsory education to all children. With this objective, Indian Parliament has enacted a legislation making free and compulsory education a Right of every child in the age group 6-14 years which has come into force from 1st April, 2010. The ‘Right to Education’ enacted by the Government of India aims at the ultimate target of ensuring universalisation of education of all children aged 6-14 years by making the provision of free and compulsory education for this age group. The wide ranging benefits of elementary education from contribution to economic growth, overcoming economic and social inequalities, empowerment, reduction of population growth and fertility to child health via mother’s schooling has weighed heavily in the evolution of a consensual view of elementary education as a fundamental right.

SADHANA strongly believes that Education empowers an individual to learn, think and act accordingly which also ensures his livelihood, improves one’s understanding of social behaviours, understanding what is right and wrong, and in the process evolve as a better person in the society .

SADHANA has been espousing the cause of education from its inception. Educational initiatives include Non Formal and Formal Education. Sadhana works for education for needy children who are under difficult circumstances, such as child labour, child marriages, out-of-school children, orphan and vulnerable children, street and runaway children, children with disabilities and children dwelling in slums. Special emphasis is given on girl child education and women education, so that their families get empowered.
