I lead the social work department at Akanksha Foundation and I have worked with children, parents, communities, and schools for the last 20 years. I remember the incident when two children from Akanksha center lost their mother, their father was imprisoned, and the kids were abandoned, In this situation, Ra foundation became their foster parents. The journey from Akanksha to Ra Foundation began and now more than 40 children are in the Happy Kids Program. I would like to thank the team who are committed workers and are passionate about each child's holistic development. We have been associated with Ra and their team for the last 10 years. The team is wonderful and they take good care of the kids.
Rakesh Ghone, Social worker, Akanksha Foundation
Witnessing RA's journey from 2 to 49 kids gives a feeling of being lucky to be part of so many families. It has been amazing the way children, families, and supporters have trusted RA and helped it grow. We are successfully evolving, passing through phases, and it brings us joy to hold hands, multiply our togetherness and keep moving forward. I feel we have managed to create a safe and enriching space for vulnerable children with the help of partnerships and a fun and flexible space for the RA team members. We look forward to each one's continued support to RA or in any other way to make this a better world for us and the generations to come.

Shaheen Mistri, Founder TFI
Ra Foundation is the best NGO working for the betterment and bright future of the kids who are out of the stream of education due to lack of financial support. The team of Ra foundation is working in a dedicated manner on this project. We are partnered with the NGO since 8 years. Their valuable contribution has enabled children to reach their highest potential. I salute Ra Foundation's team and their devotion and service for the betterment of society.
Ajay Sonavane, Principal- Sweet Memories High School , Panchgani
Education for every child can turn walls into doors. The Happy Kids Program has mirrored this belief and reached out to the most vulnerable children who often fall through the cracks and never make it to the mainstream, ensuring they have a safe and empowering environment to learn, grow and thrive. We are proud to call Ra Foundation one of our earliest partners, together with unlocking the potential of many children.
Anurag Mishra, CEO, Cipla Foundation
Ra Foundation works to provide opportunities for learning and personal growth to children who come from backgrounds where they might never have been given these chances. I have seen how the lives of these children completely changed because of the intervention and support of the Foundation. These are children who may have otherwise fallen through the cracks but who now, thanks to Ra Foundation, have a chance at a better life and a more meaningful contribution to society at large. When I see these successes, I feel extremely privileged to be associated with Ra Foundation.
Manesh Patel, Partner Ernst & Young

Which in turn will make them responsible and well-adjusted adults.

Kids are the future of the world and hence its also true that happy kids means a happy future. Ra’s Happy Kids Program is a noble step in this direction. It is my honour to be deeply attached to this program and share so much with the kids.
