Muktangan is an innovative model of education located within mainstream Government schools providing quality, child-centred, inclusive English-medium schooling to thousands of underprivileged children in Mumbai. Their learning environment nurtures sensitivity and free-thinking, developing the all-round personality of each and every child.
'Mukt' means freedom and 'Angan', the space in front of the home. They are actually the "Education for the Community, by the Community", developing teachers from the same neighborhoods as the students, who then become empowered change agents. They aspire to build and multiply a model of low-cost, high quality, youth education in the weaker section of the society and creating a program for empowering women in these communities by helping them to become teachers.
