Education is a powerful tool, which empowers communities to turn around their lives. If any member of a family is educated, it can help coming generations to break the inter-generational cycles of poverty. Education is a great enabler – it makes people skilled and equips them to engage in meaningful professions and thus contribute to their own and society’s socio-economic well-being.
In India, even today, millions of children are without any access to education. As many as 8.4 crore children in India continue to remain out of school. It’s a major social problem plaguing modern-day India and strong measures are needed to ensure the benefits of education touch everyone. A quality primary education can overturn the lives, careers and productivity of millions of its citizens. It’s is very important that every child reaps the benefits of quality education.
Govt. is concerned for underprivileged children, especially those who are unable to access education due to lack of resources or poverty. The underprivileged community does not have access to quality education. Govt. aims to solve this inequality in education by providing quality education to distressed kids. Private schools have to play a key role in providing international standard "Free-of-Cost" education to the underprivileged children and bringing positive changes in their families and communities alleviating poverty, get involved in mainstream development and break the vicious cycle of poverty
