Be it Art, Culture, Social Sciences, Physics or Mathematics- we have gained access to the best and brightest the world could offer through the power of education. It is a powerful medium in reducing inequality in society and improving a country’s competitiveness in the global economy.
India’s education system is in tatters to say the least. Its state of affairs can be gauged from the fact that around 3.5% of children between the ages of 11 and 14 years, and 13.5% between the ages of 15 and 16 years were dropouts, while children(25%) in grades I to VIII were absent from school. These are the findings from the ASER- Annual States of education Report survey. This survey included over 560,000 children between 3 and 16 years, in 589 districts of India.
To summarize the problem, India’s education problem is high dropout and low attendance. Dropouts issue is mostly restricted to BIMARU states, an acronym for Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh and states like Chhattisgarh, Uttrakhand & Jharkhand, states that were carved out of the BIMARU states.

Our plan is to give platform to underprivileged children by mentoring, educating & employing them based on their aptitude, skill & temperament. We begin that by adopting 50 children & taking care of their education needs for a period of 1 year.
