Project EKA Foundation in collaboration with Umeed Project is proud to announce the commissioning of Sharda Pathshala in Yamuna Khadar, New Delhi.
It all happened on Oct 9th 2021 when Project EKA Foudation and Umeed Project arranged a free Health Checkup Camp in partnership with LSGI in Yamuna khadar.
We noted a large group of students studying in an open ground under the flyover that runs through the area. We found out that about 250 children from the Yamuna Khadar community were seeking education within their limited means and resources in that open space.
Project Eka Foundation and Umeed Project joined hands to build “Sharda Pathshala” for the children of Yamuna Khadar community. This Pathshala is a step towards providing free quality education to the under privileged children with a proper school infrastructure, which is sustainable and ecofriendly with basic amenities.
The foundations will also work with key educationists and volunteers who will be instrumental in shaping up the bright future of our children
On this recent success, Project EKA’s founder & Chairperson Puja Rawat said, “In the loving memory of my friend & mentor Sharda, we have started “Sharda Pathshala” to fill in for the fundamental right to education and to reach out to as many children as we can, provide them with a clean, sustainable, and safe school environment, and help them grow under the guidance of our renowned educationists and mentors. Our vision is to build 50+ such schools in the coming year with a hope to adopt these communities and work in all ways possible for their upliftment.”
