EDUCATION PROGRAM SATYA BHARTI SCHOOL PROGRAM
This program is the flagship initiative of Bharti Foundation, focusing on primary, elementary and senior secondary education for underprivileged children in rural India. Currently 249 primary/elementary schools and five senior secondary schools are operational across the villages of Punjab, Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. The schools aim to transform the children into educated, employable and responsible citizens of tomorrow. Launched in 2006, this education initiative supports the pursuit of excellence and aims to set benchmarks in quality education across the country. The schools provide free quality education to the children with a special focus on the girl child. In addition to free education, the schools also provide free mid- day meals, text books, note books, shoes and other stationary items to all the students.
