Utkarsha in Sanskrit means “pulling upwards, abundance.” The Philosophy of Utkarsha is to teach children how to learn. The future jobs are for students  “who know what to do with what they know” and not just what they know. We at Utkarsh stand by its values and we are committed to providing the best education to the disadvantaged, underprivileged & neglected children of society.

​Utkarsha Learning Center was started in 2018 in Kanabargi, on the outskirts of Belagavi with 101 medically challenged and underprivileged children. The aim of the school is to ensure a stigma and discrimination-free learning environment for these children. We have been providing education free of cost and along with these providing all the facilities such as uniforms, school stationery, mid-day meals and more facilities without charging a single rupee. Currently, the school has an enrolment of 640+ underprivileged children within a span of 4 years.

Our Challenges


Challenge 1

The Children are first-generation learners and were out of school because of a lack of awareness among their parents and communities.

Challenge 2

The children were forced to involve in begging, rag picking and other unfair activities. To bring such children has been a challenging task.

Challenge 3

As these children belong to the poorest of the poor community, they need education to be completely free.

Challenge 4

These underprivileged children face various social and cultural barriers that hinder their educational progress.


Our Solution

The life-cycle approach of development starts with opening the doors of education for slum children, the underprivileged. So, Mahesh Foundation has started Utkarsha Learning Center to provide free education. They are first-generation learners and there is a need of the hour to bring awareness about education in their communities. This is possible when we educate these children. The school ensures quality and skill-based education to first-generation learners of underserved communities. Mahesh Foundation has its own premises and infrastructure facility as well as a good learning environment for 640+ children.
