Functional Dimensions

Youths being the backbone of any progressive society need to be guided and provided with essential amenities for their future endeavour. To prepare them to face the challenges of future, Koshish Foundation is providing quality education with hands on training to equip the students to face the global requirement with ease.

Empowering a woman not only brings about prosperity and strength in her life but it even acts as a catalyst in the enrichment of the lives of her children and family. We, at Koshish Foundation, strive to empower women through professional trainings, workshops, employment opportunities, etc. so that they may freely live their life with a sense of self worth, respect and dignity.

Life’s early years have a deep-seated impact on a child’s future. Hence, Early Childhood Development (ECD) is one of our primary area of work as we believe that these early years (0-5 years) provide an incomparable window of opportunity to bring about a positive and permanent difference in a child’s life. Nutrition and Education of a child during these formative years is what we specifically focus on.

Innumerable committed volunteers work with us to implement the interventions at the grassroots. These volunteers are mobilized and monitored by the Koshish Foundation team under the Presidentship of Mr Salil Deshmukh. This not only ensures more effective implementation of our programs, but also helps build capacities at the grassroots for providing quality service to the society.
