Educate A Child (EAC) is proud to highlight the achievements of its strategic and implementing partner, the Bharti Foundation based in Haryana, India. Recently, the Bharti Foundation earned two platinum FAME Excellence Awards for its work to increase access to quality education. The Foundation was specifically recognised for the ‘The Satya Bharti Quality Support Programme’ and the EAC-supported ‘The Satya Bharti Learning Centre Programme’. Elements of which provide remedial/bridge courses to out of school children (OOSC) with the intention of mainstreaming them into formal schools. In addition, since 2013 EAC and the Bharti Foundation have been collaborating through the ‘Satya Bharti Schools Project’ to enrol and retain more than 48,000 OOSC in quality primary education in the states of Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.
‘This is a wonderful accomplishment and a testament to Bharti’s strong commitment to making a difference in the lives of India’s children,’ states Dr Mary Joy Pigozzi, Executive Director of EAC.
