We strive to abolish ignorance through education of social inequalities to empower communities in India.
India, a nation of thinkers, freedom fighters, and rich cultural history, is home to 1.27 billion people. Many are unaware of the greatness that was born in India and has carried on throughout the world for thousands of years. When we visit India, it's hard to see past the hilly landscapes with scattered homes, children playing in the dirt, and sweltering sun; however, when we do, we open our eyes to the strength, love, and beauty that embodies each village, home, and person.
While the strength and love of India lies within its people, so does the heartache and pain. At Aahana, we believe that bridging the gap between societal hierarchies will transform communities. As an organization, we understand we are not fighting just one problem, but thousands.
Our mission is to eradicate the mindset behind the class system by empowering young leaders to stand up, become educated, and defy the odds. Aahana (AH-HA-NA) meaning "the first rays of sun" symbolizes that each person is the first ray of the sun we live in, this world. In 2012, we embarked on this wonderful journey to defy the odds. So what are you waiting for? Join on us on our journey towards change.
