WHO WE ARE
ANK is a non-governmental and non-profit making organization (NGO) based and working in Delhi, NCR and rural areas of Bihar in India.
ANK is a Hindi word which means “Digit” in English. The journey of ANK as a registered NGO began in 2004. ANK was established to provide education to the underprivileged children, to build better lively hood opportunities for the rural and underprivileged urban youth, to enrich quality health services for adolescent girls and women.
The thought process behind ANK is that quality education is the only medium that can improve the living standards of the poor people. It is the most powerful tool, which can equip them to make informed and intelligent choices about their lives and future. ANK believes that education is the only weapon to fight poverty and truly empower the children who tomorrow will be the face of India. ANK seeks to achieve a better tomorrow through the medium of education and unleash the power of knowledge that is inaccessible to millions.
Since its establishment as a NGO in Delhi, ANK has grown both in scope and in geographical coverage. More than 20,000 children have benefited from our learning program for the out-of-school children. Through our health programs, we have touched the lives of more than 40000 underprivileged families. Our endeavor has been to increase the access of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) among the underprivileged children and youth.
ANK is among one of the few NGOs in the country that is delivering high end Multimedia and Animation training and livelihoods opportunities for the underprivileged youth through “Anizooms” initiative.
In 2007 UEE Mission, Directorate of Education, and Govt. of NCT of Delhi ranked ANK as one of the best NGOs working in Delhi on “Sarva Shiskha Abhiyaan”.
Through our various livelihoods program, vocational training programs we have provided employability to more than 500 underprivileged youth in various sectors like, retail, hospitality, IT firms, and in Hospitals.
