Promotes the discussion of social issues amongst underprivileged youth to increase their knowledge base and ability to personally and politically improve their situations and the community.

Organization Overview

Alfa Educational Society works with traditionally victimized communities such as Adivasis, Dalits, and the poor to offer tools and alternatives to empower them to change their own situations. Specifically, Alfa Educational Society works to engage the youth in activities that spark and challenge their thoughts on contemporary rural issues, encouraging them to question their basis and develop solutions to them, to build capacity and provide trainings on several key issues, including gender roles, communalism, media, and government schemes, and to introduce rural girls and young women to new skills and create a forum for idea exchange.


Alfa Educational Society seeks to meet these goals through conducting research on the economic and social development of villages and through networking and fundraising.
