In rural areas quality education is still a distant dream. We have government schools and other institutions catering to various age group but they strictly lack infrastructure and staff required to provide quality learning for students. We regularly cooperate with various educational institutions in our close proximity and deliver need based lessons for their kids with assistance from our participants. Our aim with this project is to reduce rural, urban education divide in order for kids to have an equal start in their career.
