The organization provides primary education in 2 main centers and non-formal education in about 10 centers including 6 kishori kendras and more than 30 self help groups in eastern Uttar Pradesh. The organization also runs vocational training centers and supports various social causes. Asha Chicago provides support for teachers' salaries, training and school supplies.

Starting March 2009, Navjyoti is beginning a pilot initiative to evaluate the impact of the interactive learning material procured from Aziz Premji Foundation. This initiative is being financially supported by Asha NYC.
1. To provide primary education and non-formal education to underprevileged children.
2. Pay special attention to the education of girls, develop awareness about
their rights through education. by providing non formal education and vocational training
to the young and married women.
3. To develop in the people of village the capacity to solve their problems
through selh help groups, vocational centers, awareness campaigns and workshops.
The organization does its education work in the various villages of Aaraji line block at district Vanarasi. People manufacture Banarasi saris in most of the villages of Aaraji line. Many people, due to their poverty, have to employ their children to manufacture the saris. So children are deprived of fundamental education.
All government and non-government schools are run at day time and most of the girls of the area can't go to school. Keeping all these things in mind, firstly an evening school at Usarapatti village was opened on 13 August, 1994. For it, donation and contribution was taken from village. An evening school was opened so that children could get education without leaving their work and likewise later other centers were opened at different villages by motivating the people of these villages.
At present, in ten centers and 2 formal schools approximately 700 children are getting education. The programs are running with the co-operation of villagers and respected by the people of these areas. All the teachers and workers are associated with a voluntary spirit.

Education center takes inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave, Lok Nayak Jayprakash Narayan. This program is going on actively based on thoughts of these great men. To help in smooth running of these centers an organization 'Navjyoti Swavlamban Seva Sansthan' was registered on 9th April 1999.
