Mission and Vision

There are still about 100 million children globally that do not attend a school. Poverty is still the biggest obstacle to a proper school education in developing countries. The non-profit organisation MANINI e.V. supports projects that enables children to attend school for free thus ensuring them theior fundamental „right to education“ set forth by the United Nations.

Because of the various benefits the education of girls holds for society we are placing special emphasis on projects that facilitate school education for girls.

The charitable organisation MANINI e.V. was established in 2011 in order to support a schooling project in the province of Orissa in India. A network of people supporting the establishment of a boys’ school in the largely impoverished, rural Indian region had existed already from 2006 onwords. The implementation of all related tasks was later assumed by the charitable organisation Manini e.V.

Bhagaban Dev was raised in the village of Nuapali (new village) in Orissa.

As a child he was among the few priviledged children who could afford to attend a public school. As early as then he decided that he would later build a school for all those other children who could not afford the fees.
