The mission of Muskaan Foundation is to bring smile on the innocent faces of the children residing in slum community of the society who are deprived of the basic facilities.
Muskaan Foundation works for creating awareness in the community concerning their health, hygiene, sanitation and allied basic health related problems of the society. As today, Pneumonia, Meningitis, Malaria, Dengue, Diarrhoea and other vaccine preventable diseases are the prime reasons of Child Death in India. Muskaan Foundation works as a helping hand to root out the barriers and social stigma behind the community regarding health and hygiene by creating awareness in the community and being as a supporting hand in implementation of different National Health Programmes and others.
Muskaan Foundation makes its effort towards meaningful & sustainable improvements instead of temporary relief. The aim of Muskaan Foundation is to enable and empower the women and children to improve their lives and living condition. Therefore, the projects of Muskaan Foundation are focused on planned human and social development instead of random charity.
It has concluded that lack of education is at the root of various problems affecting Indian society. It is a serious impediment to the development and improvement in the quality of life. Muskaan Foundation wishes to make its effort and contribution towards improving community lives, spread of education and health in the Indian society.
We, at Muskaan Foundation, have worked with passion, commitment and dedication to keep the children in formal educational stream and to make them healthy. Every one of us has taken a pledge to help children who are with us today move out of the slums to a better and prosperous life.
