This educational process will help students, schools and communities to become self sustaining.
Current plans for delivering these aims is through working with local government schools - which cater for the poorest children and communities. Plans are being developed for:
- Setting up educational facilities for students between 2 and 16
- Working closely with parents to help them take an active interest in their children’s education
- Working with School management Committees to enable them to monitor the work of the school
- Basic medical care for the community
This core set up will be replicated in a number of states in India to help achieve the Foundation’s aims.During the year 20th March 2012 the group made chairtable donations of 2,536,155
