VISION

GOAL

To build a network of 10 million parent partners.

Parents have immense potential to transform schools and to bring systemic changes. Thus, we aspire to build a network of 10 million parents that would serve as a community learning platform to share their knowledge and expertise. The network would also amplify parental voices, needs and aspirations for systemic change in education.

PURPOSE

Every parent is served with dignity.

Serving every parent with respect and dignity will bridge the gap between the school and the community.

Saajha believes that every parent should be treated with dignity and respect. We are missioned to create a school environment that enables it
