Project Azaadi

We endeavour to provide free basic education to the underpriviledged women of our society to help them create an identity for themselves!

‘Education has the power to give breath to life!’


I founded Project Azaadi for women with this thought in mind.


Women including our household help, carers and any underprivileged woman who feels restricted in her life due to lack of English education. 


Me and my team of teachers endeavour to provide free basic English education to the underprivileged women of our society.


To help them create an identity for themselves!


To enable them to experience the freedom that education can give 


To lead them past any barrier that restricts their growth!

Project Azaadi has a long way to go and a lot many dreams to be created and achieved along the way 😊

Meet our Super Awesome  team
