Anandaya Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2015 by Jaishree Goyal, as the founder trustee. Anandaya’s objective is to maximise the number of underprivileged children that have access to our unique library program that improves their reading with comprehension and expression of thought, enabling them to rise above rote learning and become critical thinkers, thereby improving India’s human capital at the grassroots level and making the model sustainable through capacity building and collaboration.
