About the NGO
A few like minded people willing to contribute their time, resources and emotion to the weaker section of the society, have managed to form an organization named Towards Future.
Supriya Roy Chowdhury, the Founder and current head of the organisation, with some like minded friends decided to do something good for the society and formed Towards Future in 2008. Before Towards Future's registration Supriya worked in different NGOs for 13 years and has noticed that poor children are not receiving quality education. So the team of Towards Future decided to begin with child education which started with eight children at Kalyani center.
Later on corporate houses like Wipro Cares, Acclaris Business Solutions Pvt Ltd and some generous donors came forward to assist Towards Future which makes the job of the team smooth and easy. During her working period with other organizations, Supriya gathered experience in the field of child education, so she felt like contributing to this sector. Supriya also worked in the field of women rights issues, so later on Supriya introduced a project on women rights in Towards Future.
The aims of Towards Future are:
- Offering opportunities for basic education
- Access to primary and vocational education
- Reduce infant mortality
- Improve health & Hygiene
- Promote sustainable economic development
- Promoting women empowerment
- Conserve and protect ecology and environment
