A social enterprise that uses creative education and art innovation to empower street children & young adolescent girls

Because Art transforms wounds into hope


Protsahan India Foundation is a social impact organization registered under the Government of India as per The Indian Trusts Act of 1882. We have been working since early 2010 and got registered on May 12, 2010.

“Protsahan” is a Hindi word which means “Encouragement”.

Protsahan India Foundation uses design thinking and art innovation to transform lives of street and slum children facing abuse and vulnerability with a focus on empowering adolescent young girls to break the extreme cycle of poverty. Protsahan focuses on creative education for children and their subsequent mainstreaming through sustainable livelihoods through Art. We use the creativity of design, art, cinema, technology and digital stories to impact and empower underprivileged children to mainstream them and their communities inclusively on issues like Child Marriage, Gender Violence, Nutrition, Education and Livelihoods.
