JBF understands that the lack of education is a root cause of various social and economic problems and therefore, the foundation believes that education should be the primary area of intervention for empowering the communities. In this regard, Project Muskaan was introduced in 2007 to support Government initiatives in primary education. The project has been named ‘Muskaan’, as it aims to bring a smile on every child’s face. It’ primarily aims at improving the learning environment and the quality of education in the select schools so that students are motivated to attending school and ultimately cutting down the dropout rate. The project now reaches out to rural government primary schools in the vicinity of Jubilant Pharmova's manufacturing locations.
