Nirvanavan Foundation promotes the rights of vulnerable children (12 years and younger) through advocacy of their human rights and providing them access to education and removing caste and class barriers that leave children systematically disadvantaged.
We support children of “Nat” and “Raj Nat” communities that are migrant communities, and were traditionally dancers and entertainers. These communities have rich histories of dance and folk songs. Children from these communities have been excluded from mainstream education system due to the stigma attached to their communities, and the lack of access to education.
We help these children break the cycle of prostitution and the social stigma attached to these migrant communities
We do so by providing children from these communities holistic education so that they are able to find alternative livelihood opportunities.We have a creative and holistic approach to education with artistic, cultural and environmental elements, along with academic instruction and livelihood training.
