The project provides free and formal education to students, in and around Sotai village of Harayana, who otherwise do not have aceess to good school. The literacy rate around the area is mere 5%. The establishment of this school had a major impact on the lives of poor children.
The school is dedicated to providing education to students primarily. There are plenty of student activities including cultural programs, celebration of festivals and sports activities. Once every year, the school management interacts with parents of village children through Parents Day, and by attending a panchaayat meeting.
S.L. Nagpal Education Society was established in 1991.
Although the project is called Bhagwan Sri Ram's Academy, it has no religious affiliation at all. The school was named as a tribute to the career success of the founder of the school, Mr.S.L.Nagpal, who believed in and worshipped Lord Ram.
