The problem

84 million children in India don’t receive an education, perpetuating a multi-generational cycle of poverty, hunger and suffering.

The solution

Yellow Rooms are classrooms established in the heart of impoverished communities. Yellow Rooms uplift children mentally, emotionally and spiritually and help end generational cycles of poverty, abuse, and suffering.

about The project

Yellow Rooms are classrooms that serve as a safe space for kids in the heart of impoverished communities. They provide education and help children develop intellectually, emotionally, and physically. They restore dignity and hope for families trapped in cycles of poverty and addiction. Sarthak uses a `whole child` model to nurture safe, joyful, hopeful kids and families.
