Our Journey
How We Started

Utkarsha Learning Center, an initiative by the Mahesh Foundation, embarked on its journey in 2018 with a vision to bring hope, education, and a brighter future to HIV-positive and underprivileged children. The foundation recognized the immense potential hidden within these children and aimed to provide them with equal opportunities for growth and development.

Since 2018, the school has supported over 2000 such children and currently provides free education to 640+ children. Utkarsha is a dream project of Mahesh Foundation and its journey started with 50 students with limited classrooms and facilities but now it is equipped with all the facilities that these children need. In 2022, the school was registered under Karnataka Education Board.

A Beacon of Hope

In a society where stigma and discrimination often shroud the lives of those affected by HIV, Utkarsha Learning Center stands tall as a beacon of hope. We believe that education is a powerful tool that can break barriers, eliminate prejudice, and empower individuals to reach their fullest potential. With this belief firmly rooted in our hearts, we have been striving to create a nurturing environment where these special children can thrive.

Providing Free Education and Facilities

At Utkarsha Learning Center, we understand that education is not just about textbooks and exams but also about holistic growth. Therefore, we offer a comprehensive curriculum that not only focuses on academic excellence but also nurtures the physical, emotional, and social well-being of our students. Our dedicated team of experienced educators and support staff work tirelessly to create a safe and inclusive space for learning. We provide free education, nutritious meals, transportation facilities, healthcare support, and counseling services to ensure that every child receives the care they deserve. We believe that by addressing their basic needs, we can empower them to dream big and break free from the cycle of poverty and discrimination.
