Our Vision

“Holistic development of children from economic and socially disadvantaged backgrounds”

Our Mission

"Developing adult capacities towards creating a nurturing and stimulating environment for the holistic development of young children"

Tapasya Pratishthan has been operating in Maharashtra since 2017, in the areas of health and education. 


We are an 80G and 12 AA certified NGO registered under the Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950

THE PROBLEM

Lack of opportunity for holistic development of children from economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds.

1. Lack of an ecosystem of support and care

Families have no access to information and support that can help influence behavioural change. 

As a consequence, critical developmental milestones  in the lives of children are not met. 

2. Lack of awareness of welfare schemes

Families lack the awareness and the ability to leverage available government policies and schemes.

Intended beneficiaries of the policy/scheme do not access the relevant benefits/ support.

 
OUR SOLUTION

 Tapasya works on holistic development of children from economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds.

OUR APPROACH

We have a multi-sectoral and integrated approach to delivering solutions that leverages evidence-based best practices,  builds systemic capacity to deliver solutions and addresses needs across the spectrum of health and education, to serve the most marginalised/disadvantaged communities.

Community Involvement

We build the capacities of ‘Sakhis’ who are women from the communities we work in to deliver our programmes. This ensures that the change is owned and driven by members of the community.

Easy

Technology

We use technology for information dissemination and managing programme efficiency. We run IVRS helplines and missed call helplines to support those seeking information. 

Collaborations

We collaborate with Government departments and functionaries at all levels to build systems’ capacity. We also engage with NGOs, academic institutions and other organisations to leverage their expertise and complement their efforts in our focus areas
