Über uns

Foundation for Initiatives in Development and Education for All (IDEA) was the result of a bright idea to educate the underprivileged children. IDEA is a non-profit voluntary organization registered in 2002 and it was conceptualized by a team of qualified and experienced social scientists and social workers, to deal with the problems in education and developmental issues of the marginalized people, realizing the need for adopting a holistic approach to minimize school dropout. Currently the organisation is functioning from Maharashtra. IDEA´s initiatives are focused on the development of underprivileged children, youth and women.

IDEA´s vision is a just society where individuals have access to equal opportunity.

IDEA´s mission is to create opportunities to unprivileged sections of society for their all round development.
