Atul Foundation 2016-17

The logo of Atul Foundation Trust (Atul Foundation) is a representation of the tree of life. The tree symbolises the interconnection and metaphorical co-dependence of all aspects of life. It endeavours to convey that we do not exist for our own narrow objectives, but are part of an integrated ecosystem. We will make our own journey of life more meaningful if our way of living reflects a larger purpose. The cover page is a photograph of the students of a prathmik shala in Parnera (Gujarat). Atul Foundation has been distributing study material to students of this school every year, for about 15 years, as part of its endeavour to facilitate learning, development and self-reliance.
