About Us

  • The classroom was intervened by Teach For India fellows 3 years back and the kids had a good growth in different areas including reading comprehension, writing, math, science, sports.
  • The kids started participating actively in inter-school competitions and extra-curricular activities
  • Significant growth in the parental investment and encouragement for the kids in the community
