About Samridhdhi

Samridhdhi Trust is a social change organisation and registered non-profit. Since 2009, we have worked with over 4,000 out-of-school children of migrants in Bangalore, Pune and Delhi NCR and taken them from a “school-ready” to “job-ready” stage. Many of these children were previously engaged in rag picking, household chores, sibling care as well as, unfortunately, drug abuse, violence, illegal and harmful activities.

With Samridhdhi’s intervention, these children have not only joined regular schools and colleges but thrived in them. Currently, we have over 2,000 children (aged 6-14 years) on our rolls in Bangalore and Noida. All our students scored over 50% in their school examinations in 2018.

We partner with individuals, corporations, non-government organisations, parents, communities and the government (MOU with Sarva Sikshya Abhiyan – Department of Public Instructions, Karnataka since June 2014) to reach children in the greatest need of help.

It has been a fruitful partnership of over 3 years in bridging education for out of school children and providing after-school classes in Bengaluru and in the National Capital Region. Samridhdhi Trust has always demonstrated professionalism and an everlasting commitment to the community in providing equal access education for all. The impact brought by Samridhdhi Trust and its committed staff members in the lives of many children and families is commendable.”

We have been part of the Samridhdhi family for over 3 years now, and have followed the progress of a few children. Samridhdhi has been doing an amazing job at providing the right environment during and after school.

It is said, if you change one kid’s life you make a difference in the world. My family and I are convinced we did this with the help of Samridhi Trust. While living in India, we befriended a little girl who lived in the slums. We visited her each week, a couple of times bringing food, water, clothes, and school supplies. This went on for over a year. She became a part of our family. When we found out we were moving to the States, we were introduced to Samridhdhi Trust to help us get this girl a private education. Samridhdhi Trust handheld the family to explain that a higher education would be beneficial to her future. Now two years later, this little girl has moved up two grades, speaks and writes English, wrote us a Holiday card which was in English, thanking us for the opportunity we have given her. Her tent is now the largest in the slum, and other kids and parents now want to get a higher education. Samridhdhi Trust puts the money that is donated straight to the tuition. My family and I do a lot of nice things as we travel the world but by far, this has not only been the one that touched our hearts the most, but impacted more people then we will ever know. We proudly write this review knowing we changed a girl’s life for the better.

“I never thought that moving to Bangalore would benefit my family in such a way. I am the only earning member. At a time, I considered suicide, life was so hard. But now, both my daughters are in school. I resisted their schooling earlier becuase they helped at home but now, I couldn't be happier. One has got a scholarship because of her outstanding performance in class. She wants to continue her education after Bridge School. My younger daughter wants to follow the footsteps of her sister. I know my daughters are in safe hands. even if they come home later in the evening, they are not on an empty stomach. That in itself is a big stress they have removed from my life.”


- Geetanjali, Mother of two girls in Bridge School
