Little Umbrella Foundation introduces alternate education methods to encourage, educate, and empower children.

Little Umbrella Foundation is a Non-Profit organization that works towards the welfare of underprivileged children. Little Umbrella uses alternate education methods and workshops to encourage, educate, and empower children that would help them to shape their future. It also aims to bridge the gap between kids from affluent and underprivileged backgrounds by stimulating community participation that focuses on teaching children in a fun way through storytelling, painting, dancing, theater, film making, and other co-curricular activities. Little Umbrella Foundation organizes skill training classes including film-making workshops, chocolate, candle-making workshops, and other such productive workshops.

With a mission to nurture each child spiritually, morally, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically, Little Umbrella Foundation has hand-held several kids. Prity Banerjee, the founder of Little Umbrella Foundation always believed in a happy childhood and equal rights for children. She always felt a strong connection with the children and wanted every child to get a basic education. She knew serving humanity was the purpose of her life and devoted her life to child education and women empowerment. As a management professional and creative curator, she has introduced several kids-friendly teaching methods to nurture and evolve children involved in begging and rag picking, and other non-productive activities. ‘Service before Self’ is her mantra for living a happy and contented life.
