Jugnu in hindi means a small insect that emits light from its body in dark summer nights.
Similarly, an NGO was established by Harleen Sona and her team with an objective to enable children emit light of creativity and positivity by improving the functionality of the Government Schools in Punjab. We work for children of government schools to enhance their creativity skills by using various innovative methods and tools. Jugnu is operated by a dynamic team of professionals including Harleen Sona, Samandeep Kaur, Ishjit Singh and Satpal Singh a technocrat.
Our operations are primarily funded by like-minded people, family and friends but now we are moving on to organized funding.
