Their potential of reaching the best institutions in India is stifled by lack of proper education and coaching and access to tuition/ coaching institutes which enable students to get admissions in good colleges.

The vision of the project is to enable opportunities for children by improving; the learning environment in a School, the quality of the teacher student transaction and the quality of the child’s mental and emotional process. Enabling them to join the top institutions in the country, and provide them mentoring support.
