Volunteering was something that always interested me but I never imagined it was something I would do so soon in life. I came across Atma in an article which listed the ‘Best NGO’s to work for in Mumbai’ and indeed it is true. The work and time here was enriching and it feels so good to have contributed a bit to the amazing work that Atma education does. During my association with Atma, I


More than 20+ Atma partner NGOs and 5000 children will watch the Atma team perform at a flash mob. At the moment, the team is working with a well-known choreographer on few groovy numbers (no Honey Singh songs) at Bandra’s Mehboob studio. The exact location of the flash mob in Mumbai will be announced on our official Twitter handle only a few hours before the event. So, follow us! The


Volunteering with Atma, and in turn with Atma partner Karunya Trust, was the most valuable experience in my professional and personal quest towards wanting to make a difference in helping vulnerable communities. The lessons learnt, the precious memories made, and the amazing people I have met both at Atma and at Karunya Trust, have exceeded my expectations. Through working with Atma Education I was finally able to delve deeper into understanding


Three months in India and the thought of leaving does not settle well with my stomach. At first all unsettling sensations were effects of delicious but sketchy food vendors located in every corner. Now, my stomach has adjusted to Mumbai’s street food and I have adjusted to every street in Mumbai. I recently graduated from Hamilton College, located in upstate New York, with a B.A. in Comparative Literature and Chinese. I have learned a lot during my


Atma has selected six NGOs from Mumbai to be a part of the Atma Accelerator Program. The selected NGOs will be a part of Cohort 2015 and receive 1200 hours of support per year for the next three years along with one dedicated Partnership Manager and three skilled volunteers to help their NGOs become bigger, better and stronger. Atma’s ‘Cohort 2015’ and ‘Special-Ed Cohort 2015’ has NGOs with huge potential


Atma Partners Bright Future, Muskan Foundation and Sol’s ARC graduated from the Accelerator Program on July 7, 2015. It was a day of laughter and anecdotes and remembering days when leaders of these NGOs worked with the Atma team to figure their next best move. “We have had lots of lengthy arguments in this room. Budget wise, we just had 8 lakh when we started. Last year we raised 48


1. LET’S START WITH DAHI PURI   This crunchy, tangy treat instantly won my heart. What an invention!  2. VADA-PAV    I had to try this! Mumbai’s famed snack Vada Pav hits all the taste-buds and is a favorite snack of everyone from laborers to the CEOs. Hamburger out, humble burger in. 3. RICKSHAWS    I enjoyed taking rickshaw rides in the evening in Mumbai. It’s fun. But, beware, drivers can be really selective about


In my limited association with Atma, I had a lot of learning experiences right from closely getting to see how inclusion is embraced by organisations like Sahyog and Mimansa- which are working on developmental disabilities- to how an M&E technique like Most Significant Change can help a team celebrate its successes and identify areas of improvement. I am happy to inform you all that I scored the highest grades for my


Our day is full of choices. Some that seem easy, some that are hard – but somehow, when we take a moment to stop and look back, it’s clear how each one defines a little part of us, like a small tap of the sculptor’s chisel. I made a choice exactly a year ago to apply to be an associate at Atma Education for the fal​l​. I knew very little


I arrived in Mumbai in March and in my four months here I have experienced the height of summer and the onset of monsoon madness. There is so much to discover in the city, from rock-climbing by the Arabian sea to the colourful lanes of old Worli fishing village, to name but a few. One of the most intense experiences I had was visiting the extremely crowded and very pungent
