Amba Foundation traces its modest beginnings to an initiative to educate a handful of eager children in a neighborhood slum cluster. Later, it extended its commitment to the community at large, through provision of primary health-care. Today, it has an established non-formal education program, a multi-faceted health program, skill training for employability of youth and women and the Delhi Government’s Gender Resource Centre and Suvidha Kendra project under its banner. The Organization runs its core activities through its three Centers located in East district of Delhi. In addition it has adopted an identified outreach area covering 10000 underprivileged families living in urban slums and unauthorized colonies in the targeted area.
This growth has been fueled by the perseverance of a dedicated worker, community and volunteer base. As a result of their efforts, Amba Foundation has been able to realize its dream of strengthening a sense of voluntary service to society. And true to its name, Amba has won the distinction of a metaphorical Mother, who nurtures her children with all her dedication, so they can take wings and fly to higher skies. Amba rests on the foundation of volunteerism, participative development and secularism.
