Education is the 'Holistic' development of a child. Every child has the potential to excel in one or another field. The objective of all round growth can be achieved only if the child is given plenty of exposure in the fields according to its interest, caliber and conveniences. With these ideas, the Foundation supports the candidates seeking opportunities in their respective creative field through organizing counseling sessions, consultation camps for higher education, Book Bank Facilities and e-services.
