Shiksharth Trust ( recognized as Shiksharth) is a registered non-government organization founded with the sole objective of bringing out the development of tribal communities in the naxal-affected regions of Sukma in Chhattisgarh, India

Shiksharth exists to develop a contextually relevant COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATION MODEL FOR CHILDREN FROM SPACES OF CONFLICT AND ADVERSITY by strengthening pedagogy, systems and community in an integrated approach.
