In June 2008, we embarked on a journey of setting up low-cost schools in rural areas. In the year since, we have watched an idea grow into an academic institution across several villages in Andhra Pradesh. The Indus Academy currently provides high quality education at nominal costs through nine schools across four districts in rural AP. It addresses the needs of 350 students and has a staff of 30 mentors.
Schools in AP
We are poised to enter into a public-private partnership (PPP) with the state government of Gujrat, for the running of tribal schools. This will be one of our initiative in which we combine our expertise of running skill schools with that of secondary education.
It is also proposed that we take up the administration and academic delivery of a certain number of Adarsh government schools in Punjab. This will be a pilot to test the efficacy of a PPP model.
