Through quality education we strive to improve access to learning and livelihood opportunities in our local communities.
Education not only equips with knowledge, but it also empowers everyone to lead a decent life as it leads to a holistic development of an individual. Aligned with SDG 4 – ‘Providing inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities to all’, we run our initiatives that support pre-school education in the form of Balwadis and elementary schools, school education, and also support the community through vocational trainings.
