Restoring Dignity & Transforming Lives

Taking its name from the Hindi word for self-progress, Aatma Vikas is devoted to providing pathways to the mistreated and marginalized that allow access to economic empowerment, meaningful employment, restored dignity and transformed futures.

Aatma Vikas’ Strategy

Provide relevant technical training skills and holistic development courses that changes the trajectory of our graduates' lives, equipping them to become valuable and contributing members of their communities.

The Need

With limited access to education due to low caste status, rural location or gender, many villagers have limited employment options, forcing them into manual labor jobs, slavery and prostitution.

The Idea

Develop and offer technical and holistic development training that will open the doors to better employment and increased confidence, ultimately strengthening individuals and their communities.

The Solution

Establish rural and urban training centers, largely run by ‘trained trainers’ indigenous to the communities, and offer self-development and life skills courses focused on topics such as communication and financial education.
