Mission and Vision

Who We Are

SlumShine is a non-profit organization with an aim and spirit to decrease the poverty with this movement. We are known for motivating slum people towards education for themselves as well as for their next generations.

At our organization, we are working for slum children who used to live on the footpath of Indian urban life. Mostly they are born in the third generation of people living on the footpath. Often they are involved in garbage collection activity. They are earning by collecting garbage only. Our survey report of such 2300 children shows some astonishing fact about that their mentality.

Whenever we asked, “What is your hand is for?" In response, 80 % of children answered that “Our hands are for collecting garbage and eating." We approach this neglected children who are by heart millionaire. We try to change their mindset to make them educated on roadside school. Our school is running at Gulbai Tekra slum near university area of Ahmedabad.

Our Mission

Our mission is to work on the root causes of changing the minds and motivate the people of the slum community. By this movement, we want that every slum people take proper education for themselves and stand tall with a rapidly growing society.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a society with No Illiteracy and No Poverty. To create a society in which a person should not judge by their attitude and culture but judge by their adapting ability and hidden skillsets.

Because one person can not create a better society but a group with proper education and skillsets can do this easily.

Our Role

Our role as a non-profit organization to become a bridge of connection between people who are in need of help and people who can provide support, and care services to needy people.

Our Focus

Our goal is to provide a bridge between those who are in need of help and those who can provide care services and support.

Our Logic

Road side education and education sitting on floor and at home is  not an experiment.It’s how people learned to function in the world for centuries And there is no reason to think people today cannot do the same thing. Rather such experiment  has proved to become ladder to reach higher study.
