Our mentor, Dr. Shamarao Kalmadi, had dreamt of bringing smiles on the faces of young boys and girls, coming from less fortunate migrant families from Karnataka and giving them opportunities to live better lives. We strive to fulfill this dream and provide high school education to 183 children of poor Kannadigas.

Project Abhigyaan is an initiative by the Lila Poonawala Foundation to impart extra skills to economically deserving primary and secondary students. Our school was chosen to pilot the project as most of our students come from economically lower backgrounds. Under this project 160 students received training in Performing Arts, Mathematics, English, Computers and Environmental and General Science during the 2010-2011 academic year, as well as career guidance.
