The Quality Education Program for Underprivileged is a school-based program which aims to improve the overall schooling experience for the students as well as the teachers by bringing in mainly co-scholastic activities as well as support for scholastic work at schools if needed. It complements Government’s programs to improve learning levels by creating institutions where all stakeholders including parents are involved in creating a change for the better.
Despite considerable economic progress in India in the last couple of decades, poverty has continued to pervade rural areas. Children in rural areas have been denied access to proper education with schools lacking basic facilities, teachers being unmotivated and frequently absent. Even those who eventually make it through twelve years of schooling graduate lacking even basic skills, making it impossible to seek gainful employment or pursue higher education.
