Gyanarthi Programme

Gyanarthi Programme is an Open Basic Education program where the students have the advantage of learning at their own pace and potential. Independent and self -learning makes them life time learners.

During this Pandemic, it is the poor and the marginalized section of the society who is the most affected and the learning has been greatly disrupted. Many children are out of school and even after the school reopens, these children may still not be able to join the school due to their economic condition.
