Satya Bharti Schools stand as beacons of hope in the villages of India.  They offer quality age-appropriate education, free of cost to underprivileged children, along with welfare schemes like mid-day meals, school uniforms, and education materials.

The programme has a special focus on girls, committed to developing them into self-reliant individuals with a deep sense of social commitment.  In higher classes, vocational courses are introduced to enhance employability.

The EAC and Bharti Foundation partnership creates opportunities for the enrolment of out-of-school children through existing Satya Bharti Schools and support to government schools. The partnership will enrol over 48,000 out-of-school children in India.
