Arpan is a 2006 Registered Trust, which is actively  operating in the field of innovative education.

They started providing free tuition in various slums of Delhi and today they are reaching 500 children within the age group of 7-­17 years of age.  Their primary focus area has been to use education as a tool for the holistic development of each child. 

They use performing and visual arts for Life Skills training.
They are on a mission to take positive role models to the doorstep of each child existing in challenging situations, such as the urban slums, shelter homes and children on the streets.
They use theatre, painting, storytelling, movies, interactive games and wall painting to fulfill their mission.

Arpan have been mindful to keep their reach all inclusive; they are targeting children with special needs, children from disadvantaged socio-­economic strata and children in mainstream schools as well.

Through constructive ‘play’ activities they want to bring in much-needed behavioural change, empower children to understand and deal with various issues concerning them and in turn make them active change agents for the future.
