Overview: Mainly focusing on excelling Girl’s education, this program was initiated in 2018 with a pilot project at a girls center in Rajkot City. This center has around 55 girls from all over Gujarat's remote villages. Girls from ages 8 to 18 are living here at no cost and doing their schooling in a city schools for a better quality of education. Under this program, we modernized the center with Books, TV, Computers and also hired math, computer and English teachers for after-school coaching program. The center is usually still in the actual owner's control. Our program only controls the educational segment. This program renews annually based on the academic performance.
