  • Overview

    Transform Live one school at a time initiative creates positive change and secures a better future for schoolchildren in rural India by integrating Sehgal Foundation’s primary programs in water management, agriculture development, and good rural governance at the school level.
    The Sehgal Foundation’s mission is to strengthen community-led development initiatives to achieve positive social, economic, and environmental change across rural India. With support from donors and partners, the foundation’s rural development interventions create opportunities, build resilience, and provide solutions to pressing challenges in hundreds of India’s poorest villages.
    Foundation teams work with rural communities, creating sustainable programs and adapting technologies for managing water resources, increasing agricultural productivity, and strengthening rural governance. Emphasis on gender equality and women’s empowerment is central to each endeavor. The Transform Lives, One School at a Time initiative integrates programs to empower children in government schools.
    Over 128 million children in India’s public schools have no access to drinking water, toilets, safe school buildings, life skills, digital literacy training, and no playgrounds.
