Sivasri Foundation is a Trust that was formed for the specific purpose to raise resources through networking among like-minded people and organizations.

Sikshana's Mission - Improve learning levels in the Public education system, with quantitative targets and time schedules. - Adopt modern teaching techniques and aids. - Work in collaboration with the Government and from within the system. - That any meaningful effort needs to be from within the system, using its strengths and overcoming its weaknesses. Sikshana Aims at: - Improvement of learning levels in the Public education system, with quantitative targets and time schedules. - Adoption of modern teaching techniques and aids. - Working in collaboration with the Government and from within the system. - Mobilization and deployment of resources, concentrating on core essentials and avoiding frills. - Using a zero overhead system in the conveyance of resources. - Applying management concepts commonly used in other sectors- such as budgeting and targets, accountability, return on investment, motivation and non-fiscal reward systems. - Developing a sustainable model for replication on a wider scale. Sikshana is all about improving the quality of education in the state-run schools so as to provide an opportunity for children from the lower strata of the society to raise their living standards. In the process, we expect to make a dent on the negative image of the Public school system. The exercise is also aimed at developing a sustainable model which lends itself to replication at higher levels.
