About Us

Established in 2010, the Ahvaan Trust
is a not-for -profit Public Trust driving the change for students, teachers and
parents in Government schools.

We work in the critical Foundational Years of Learning, developing age appropriate skill based curricula, which integrates socio emotional learning and universal values; building the capacity of teachers through training related to FLN, coaching & mentoring as well as parent engagement.

By engaging with State Government institutions, we support the rejuvenation and reform of their institutional capacities to deliver the FLN mission, where every child learns.
