Vision & Mission
"Child, give me your hand, so that I may walk in the light that you show me" – Mahatma Gandhi
A healthy and an enlightened child is a vision EN has as its core dream. Education, healthy environment,
proper nourishment and affectionate supporters will make this dream come true.
Though the circumstances around the child are not very bright as of today,
we at Eknath Kaka Jagtap Pratisthan want to brighten up every child's life by eradicating fear from his/her heart.
Leaders communicate in the sense that people around them know what they are trying to do.
They are purpose driven--yes, mission driven. They know how to establish a mission.
And another thing, they know how to say no.
The pressure on leaders to do 984 different things is unbearable,
so the effective ones learn how to say no and stick with it.
They don't suffocate themselves as a result. Too many leaders try to do a little bit of 25 things and get nothing done.
They are very popular because they always say yes. But they get nothing done.
The Eknath Kaka Jagtap Pratisthan Foundation is a non-profit organisation with a mission to provide children from low-income
communities with a high-quality education, enabling them to maximize their potential and transform their lives.
Eknath Kaka Jagtap Pratisthan works in the field of education, initiating school reform through The School Project,
and providing a supplemental education through the Eknath Kaka Jagtap Pratisthan centers.
The School Project is a venture to open high-quality schools serving children from low-income communities in Pune.
These schools are in partnership with local municipalities,
with the vision of creating small clusters of model schools in these cities that can be used to impact the mainstream education system.
Through the centers, a commitment is made to support each child by providing a strong educational foundation, good time.
