It seemed very difficult in the beginning, but now we are confident that the increased community mobilization will be supporting our school processes further. The student clubs, house system, involving the community in the school activities, inter-school competitions, library, gallery walk, and school assembly, Bal Sabha, etc. will be continued with the same spirit. ”

The community members added more to appreciate Bharti Foundation’s work. They said “It is always a pleasure to contribute to the school development. We have supported the school in a few aspects like distributing prizes on Republic Day or by providing education volunteers for a few months etc. But after Bharti Foundation’s intervention, we became more aware of the need of us in the holistic school development. Our contribution might be very less as per the requirement but community support is always important for a school. We will ensure our support and stand with the school for further improvement”
