As the education is the key for social transformation and powerful tool for social equality, we launched 'Student-Sponsorship' program in 2002. The goal is to encourage poor Dalit children to continue their schooling despite poverty of their family background. We identified students from villages and offered them scholarship to pursue their education in boarding homes or in their own schools.
More than 70% of those enrolled in our programs are Dalits, and 100% of our students are the first generation in their families to attend English Medium (Matric) schools. A total of 75% of the families are daily laborers, who make less than $2 per day. As many as 80% of the parents are illiterate.
We offer a unique and innovative approach to delivering education to underserved students, featuring highly competent and well-trained faculty, and aesthetically designed, spacious classrooms that encourage creativity and active engagement. We also offer opportunities to incorporate surrounding nature into study, and individualized attention and learning strategies customized for each student.
The quality, affordability and cost effectiveness of our programs attract many poor families to give a decent education for their children. We keep our doors open to any child regardless of their ability to pay or not. The hygienic environment at our campus is an excellent path to obtain a fine education. We envision closing the gap between rich and poor, and building a nation where everyone can live in security and dignity.
