Imagine the MAGIC we can do if only we make them productive
Shifting Orbits Foundation is an 80G/12AA/CSR-1/FCRA authorized Non profit organization set up in 2018 with the mission of uplifting underserved communities through its After School Learning Centers setup in both Urban and Rural locations.
After school space in education remains one of the most overlooked areas and unfortunately that's where an average child in India (especially in the under-served communities) spends 82% of their waking hours. It's also the space where most of the drift from the educational path occurs leading to a vicious cycle of poverty repeated generation after generation. (Only 17% of students land up finishing college). And all this happens in spite of several NGO and CSR efforts being spent on school and system level changes!.
Each of our center supports students from Grade 8 upward till their jobs by channelizing their after school hours into productive skill building time. Eventually we hope to create a movement led by these increased educated members who will then uplift their communities in the future.
We believe that everyone deserves a chance to live a fulfilling life, and that through our efforts, we can make a real difference in the world.
Join us in our mission to change lives and make a lasting impact on the world.
Whether you help us through monetary donations, partnering with us, volunteering your time, connecting us to your CSR teams ,offering employment to our cohorts or simply spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, We will not be able to accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
We can also work with you on specialized or customized program (like family name based scholarships, Special programs for Special Days etc) that you may want.
If these thoughts resonate with you and your organization, we would love to have more conversations.

Vidhya means education. Daan means contributions. Together it symbolizes the "gifting of education" to someone - one of the highest form of contribution one can make.
Aayudam means weapon. Daan means contributions. Together in our context it symbolizes - gifting our students with the "ammunition of resources" that will help them win the battle of sustaining education that they constantly have to fight!
Vriksha means tree. Daan means contributions. For us, this symbolizes the contribution towards "nurturing a tree (such as the banyan)" through our center that will eventually serve the needs of entire community for years ahead in the future.
