It would be impossible for us to achieve our goal of protecting India‚Äôs vulnerable children without the unwavering support of our partners and supporters. We owe them a deep debt of gratitude. 




Individual supporters


We have also been incredibly fortunate to be able to count on financial and volunteer support from individuals and family foundations who have been extremely generous with both their time and resources.

Partner Organizations


Partnering within our community programs

As every child has unique needs, we work with partners who are best placed to help him or her. Over the years we have established a directory, which lists relevant partner organizations in the areas of education, vocational training, mental health, de-addiction and sexual abuse.

Our partners include Majlis, Pratham, Sahara Charitable Trust and Doorstep (Education), Prayas Juvenile Aid Centre Society Human Law Network (Legal Aid), Manav, IPH and Ummeed (Mental Health), Don Bosco and Pratham Info Tech (Vocational Training), Kripa, KEM Hospital and GT Hospital (De-addiction Treatment) as well as CHIP (Mumbai and Kolkata) and Hamari Muskan in Kolkata.


Partnering to roll out Aangan’s programs

We also work on developing innovative models, test these in the field and then train partners to implement these programs.

After running Project Shakti for two years, we developed a workbook and training curriculum to train other NGOs to run the Project in their communities. So far Meljol, Prerna, CHIP and Hamari Muskan are implementing Shakti in certain pockets of Mumbai, Kolkata and the Akhola district.

Partners about us

"LGT Venture Philanthropy is proud to be associated with Aangan and its continued efforts to improving the lives of children both in high-risk communities and in state-run institutions."
Wolfgang Hafenmayer, Managing Partner, LGT Venture Philanthropy, Zurich

"We support Aangan because they have demonstrated a strong understanding of the different developmental needs of both adolescent boys as well as adolescent girls, while also remaining committed to breaking down gender inequalities."
Julian Liu, Program Officer, Asia Region, EMpower, New York

"When Aangan approached us with Project Shakti, it was just a plan and yet to demonstrate success. We believed strongly in the idea (which is radical as it places adolescent girls in high-risk communities at the very centre of their empowerment), in Aangan's committed and professional leadership and the impact Shakti would have on the community, particularly on girls. Through Project Shakti, Aangan has over the last two years enabled and created a safe space to help adolescent girls find individual and collective strength and has sparked in them the ability to negotiate with those in their environment. What is striking about the programme is the alumni network of young adolescent girls who are emerging as leaders within their communities. Aangan has also successfully demonstrated that spectrum-wide partnerships with state governments, institutional homes, funders, communities and most importantly young people themselves can result in better governance of homes and support to young people in conflict with law."
Aditi Thorat, Chief Operating Officer, EdelGive Foundation, Mumbai
