Bharat Abhyudaya Foundation (BAF)

BAF is a not-for-profit organization founded by a group of young and energetic IIM / Harvard graduates who wanted to explore the reality beyond the mirage of their Ivy League institutes and US jobs. Since 2012, BAF is committed to the cause of elementary education reform at institutional level while working closely with the civil societies as well as the government in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

We at BAF work closely with the top leadership of the State and Central Government to drive better policies and more importantly their efficient delivery through effective monitoring mechanisms. Effective implementation of Right to Education clauses and innovative initiatives of building accountability around the system has been our major focus areas.


Our mission is to create cordial opportunities for socially inclusive classrooms within schools for higher quality of learning experience to all children. Also to improve quality of public school system by building community based accountability mechanisms that recognizes and rewards leadership qualities in teachers as well as students.


Our vision is a socially equitable society with universal access to quality education irrespective of any socio-economic factors.


Our approach focuses on interventions within core government policy and delivery system in an attempt to institutionalize the change in government system in order to achieve a lasting and large scale impact. 



BAF aims to admit 5000 underprivileged children in private schools under the Right to Education (RTE) Section 12 and then ensure the social inclusion of these children in the school environment.
