We’re a group of passionate and determined creative problem-solvers who want to make a difference. We come together to bring life-changing education to children living in India, thus facilitating learning for the entire life cycle –from childhood to livelihood.

Bal Utsav connects citizens, civil society groups, corporate houses, academicians, media and government through various online and offline methods. Our sphere of activities address issues that are common across different segments of society, while being sensitive to diverse geographies and backgrounds. It would be amiss, if we didn’t mention that we value integrity, and are unflinchingly honest and transparent in our thoughts and actions.

Why an NGO for Education?

Look around you, and think about the world you live in. The good and the bad. Education makes all the difference don’t you think? Without education, the heart has no hope nor direction. It doesn’t take long for an aimless heart to choose shortcuts as means to ends, making them dangerous individuals, with every passing day. Without education, the mind is easy prey for criminal activities. By denying the means of education, we are, clearly encouraging criminal behavior. We are, knowingly, deliberately, endangering the lives of ourselves, our children and our loved ones if we do not act on our responsibility to ensure education for everyone.
