To empower students to acquire, articulate, demonstrate and value knowledge and skills that will support them.


To give every student the education, skills  and care needed to grow

Our Objective

To educate and nurture at least 10,000 children into future leaders who will have a positive impact on their communities. Our focus is on investing in children from under privileged and socially challenged backgrounds. Our commitment is that at least 50% of the students will be granted partial or full scholarships. We believe that in investing in these students will benefit not only their families but generations to come.

Unfortunately, most private schools in India cater to middle and high-income families. These schools charge exorbitant fees well above the affordable levels for an average Indian family. Children from underprivileged communities are usually left with no choice but to study in under equipped schools or even drop out of school during the most formative years of their early childhood education. The result is a huge percentage of the children from the lower economic strata of society do not get a strong foundation in early academics which results in unemployment and underemployment in later years.
