Education is the integral part of all around development of a child. The facilities and teaching methods differs in different schools.

We provide free tutorial classes and other scholastic needs like books, pens, storytelling services,clothes, choreography training, artistic competitions, refreshment etc to the Children who are underprivileged, abandon, poor and whose family members are working as laborers.
