This has resulted in a “Zero School Drop-out Rate” with more than 5,00,000 beneficiaries through various activities. Although basic indicators for good education have been achieved, yet rural children are not capable of competing with urban children in aspects of personality building. This IGDMRC Project will enable build the future of rural children by developing their skills through a series of activities in school.
