The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act or Right to Education (RTE) act of 2009 made India one of the very few countries in the world to make education a right of every child. Section 12(1)c of the act guarantees 25% reservation for children of backward and economically sections of the society free education in private schools.
An estimated 10 lakh such free seats are available each year, yet most of them are not taken as there is little awareness among under-privileged communities. Our focus is to engage volunteers in creating awareness among such communities and helping them benefit from this life transforming opportunity. Signup to Volunteer now!
