The Future of India Lies in the Classroom!

Insaniyat is a non-profit organisation aimed towards bringing lasting change through social development. We believe it is possible to live as a community based on mutual respect, to work together and deal with existing problems of inequality and illiteracy with radical steps.
India is a country where wealth and poverty share a disturbing proximity. We seem to be stuck on the idea that an individual is separate from society. You can hear that it’s crazy; you can see that it’s wrong; you feel it is beyond disturbing but no one is doing their bit to bring a change. Too many times we are told, “there’s nothing we can do about it, this is just the way things are.” Naturally, you begin to believe it.
Equality and respect are essential to our humanity. Educating the young, empowering women, providing for the needy is our top priority. In an attempt to stand for what is right and a will to achieve these goals we set for ourselves, a group of like-minded friends established ‘Insaniyat.’
