ALIG is a registered NGO in India, working primarily on three verticals i.e. Education, Health & Emergencies and Skill.
ALIG has been working in the field of education to bridge the learning gap. We work to improve the academic standard of government school students at primary and upper primary level and also help in arresting the drop-out rates. Quality Education is an important sustainable development goal identified by the United Nations. ALIG's program on Education focuses on digital literacy, adult literacy and learning enhancement through traditional education with an emphasis on English as a language. It lays emphasis on the all-round development of students with the help of clubs promoting environmental values, scientific temperament, literary interest and self-confidence boosting activities.
UN sustainable development Goal Number One talks about no poverty, UN sustainable development Goal Number Two talks about zero hunger and UN sustainable development Goal Number Five talks about gender equality. All these objectives could be achieved with the help of Skills, which empower women. In four states of India, ALIG has been working in the fields of skill development and women empowerment for the past several years. It trains women in trades that could help them become self-employed and consequently, self-reliant.
India with more than 50% of its population under the age of 25 years, possesses huge potential by virtue of its young population in comparison to other countries.
It is crucial to take the health concerns of this sizable population into consideration and work towards their well-being. ALIG recognizes this and is committed to contributing to the well-being of its young population through various health-related initiatives.
ALIG has always been at the forefront whenever the nation has faced an emergency. Reaching out to vulnerable and underprivileged sections of the society has been a priority for ALIG. During the COVID-19 pandemic, ALIG was able to reach out to more than 3,000 families of Government School children, which translated into distribution of more than a million meals.
