1. Rural Education Program (REP) – Reaching the Unreached

The goal of REP is to bring holistic education transformation by imparting quality education for all while transforming Govt. Schools into “Model Schools” by plugging the gaps of government schemes through physical, academic & digital transformation. The program focuses on pre-primary, primary and middle schools in various locations. It is designed to address the issues related to schools’ inadequate physical infrastructure and learning environment, lack of digital based learning, insubstantial cooperation between various stakeholders, dismal level of motivation among parents, children & teachers, lack of community awareness and lack of opportunity and access for the school dropouts through empowering teachers, developing ownership among community and leveraging support of government department to solve the issues.
