There is a long list of things that still need to be done to provide these children with an opportunity to understand and exploit their potential. Some things relate to providing physical and material amenities while others relate to their psychological and attitudinal growth.

It is the earnest desire of the school to tackle both these issues by providing a better learning environment with more classrooms, uniforms, books, one to one interaction through more teachers. Enhance their development through exposure to the world at large by exploratory trips and outlings. Bringing in the use of techonology such as computers to the class room.

We hope to provide them with practical knowledge of their parental profession e.g. farming, horticulture, or a trade as they reach higher classes, which can be a source of economic support or else education becomes the first casualty.

Another major concern is the health of these children. The school is making efforts to provide health checkups for them along with an immunization programme.
