of utmost importance. Quality and access
to education is the major problem in
village as there are fewer committed
teachers, lack of proper text books and
learning material in the schools. Though
Government schools exist, but when
compared to private schools then quality
is a major issue. Hence this is year we
took multiple CSR projects to facilitate
better means of education to children
