We are group of socially active and aware college students working together to provide education to the underprivileged children of the society. We have set up various education camps near the slum areas in various cities of India, classes are held at these camps every day for at least one hour in the evening. Every member of our group devotes at least 1 hour per week in teaching at education camps. We admit some academically outstanding children from our camps to nearby schools also. Currently more than 100 underprivileged children are enrolled in more than 5 schools. All the stationary at the education camps and fees for the schools is supported by funding from our group. Apart for teaching children at camps, we organize other activities like sports events, health awareness, cloth distribution and festival celebration.
We registered our group as non-government organization (NGO) by the name Slum Swaraj Foundation on 24th June 2019 under the Companies Act, 2013.
Currently, more than 1200 college students are working for our NGO. We have set up 7 education camps at various locations with more than 700 children at these camps. More than 100 academically outstanding students from these camps are enrolled in schools by our NGO. We look forward to enrolling as many as possible children to the schools
The single aim of my life is that every child is: free to be a child, free to grow and develop, free to eat, sleep, see daylight, free to laugh and cry, free to play, free to learn, free to go to school, and above all, free to dream.
Anyone who is willing to teach children at camps or support us financially can join our organization. We are looking forward to expanding our organization to other cities in the country.

We at Slum Swaraj Foundation envisioned to create a society where the overall development of a child is not halted by FINANCIAL and SOCIAL constraints.
- To provide BASIC EDUCATION to every child deprived of it due to financial constraints or other reasons.
- To prevent children from being pulled in to CHILD LABOUR.
- To provide an equal platform to underprivileged children so that they can explore their potential and can make use of it.
- To spread awareness among children about their RIGHTS and DUTIES.
