About Us


Our purpose of existence is to enhance the social consciousness of society.

Kritash was founded in 2017 by Abhishek Kumar Gupta (mechanical undergraduate), as the Social Welfare Body of IIT Jammu. That brought up a group of students together to contribute towards the betterment of society with a focus of teaching underprivileged children. We share a common dream-” To create awareness and work in empowering children by providing them fundamental knowledge to sustain themselves in near future.”

Despite being a capital city of Jammu and Kashmir Province, Jammu has over 5000+ migrant laborers living in makeshift homes in slums that are overcrowded, lack of adequate water supply, sanitation, and security. Children of slum dwellers, often do not get access to basic education and instead have to start working to support their family. The deprivation of these resources is recognised by the United Nations to be a violation of basic human rights. It’s not the duty of government alone to promote human rights and fundamental freedom of individuals/groups, It’s the duty of us- the citizen to do our part to ensure the betterment of each section.
