Welcome to 'Samaaveshi Pathshaala'
One day, all schools will become 'inclusive'.
We are a registered nonprofit working on inclusive education in Karjat tribal block of Maharashtra, founded in 2018 by two graduates of Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Mumbai. Our vision is to build an inclusive society: a society for all where no one is left behind and everyone gets equal opportunity to excel in life. And the journey to build an inclusive society starts from an 'inclusive classroom'.
Samaaveshi is the winner of iPRENEUR 2019.
Samaaveshi founders are WIPRO Fellows 2021.
Key programmes / Impact in 2021
Why 'inclusive education'?
PROBLEM: Low school enrolment and high dropout among children with disabilities (CWDs).
In India, 34% of all CWDs are 'out of school'. (UNICEF, 2015)
Of all CWDs enrolled in school, only 8.5% make it to secondary level, and a dismal 2.3% pursue higher secondary education. (MHRD India, 2016)
SOLUTION: To bring systemic transformation in schools where all children irrespective of their social background or disability study together in the same classroom.
Strategic plans (2021–30)
Key programmes and organizational goals
As an early-stage nonprofit, we're continuously looking for collaboration and knowledge exchange.
