Freedom Through Education with P&G Shiksha and Round Table India
Education is a powerful tool which empowers communities to turn around their lives.
Over the years, Tapas Foundation has been working extremely hard in providing lakhs of underprivileged children the access to quality education.
Less than half of India’s children between the age 6 and 14 go to school. A little over one-third of all children who enroll in grade one reach grade eight. At least 35 million children aged 6 – 14 years do not attend school. 53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate.
Keeping the importance of education of the underprivileged kids in mind Tapas Foundation collaborated as a Campaign Partner with P&G(Procter & Gamble) under their CSR programme P&G Shiksha with Round Table India and BRT-257 for their initiative called ‘FREEDOM THROUGH EDUCATION’ under which they successfully constructed a school in Dahod, Mandideep, Madhya Pradesh on 23rd December, 2021.
The newly constructed school has well built classrooms along with toilets to ensure maintenance of proper hygiene of the underprivileged kids.
The Bhoomi Poojan took place on 23rd December, and was a day event wherein the kids of the school presented their talented via enthusiastic performances and cultural presentations like dance and drawing competition.
Principal Mrs. Sandhya Tripathi from Govt. School Dahod and all the school staff and Dignitaries from P&G Mandideep were present for the Bhoomi Poojan of the Project.
Educated communities not just create better citizens but also ensure better employment and enterprise, therefore with a vision of educating kids, Tapas Foundation is always willing to ensure the benefits of education to be accessible to everyone.
