Project Location: Sakhre Ashram Shala and Bhopoli Ashram Shala in Jawhar Taluka, Palghar Program Highlights: This project aims at reaching out to tribal children from Jawhar Block of Palghar district which is considered a backward block in terms of human development index and literacy. We also aim to encourage and equip these tribal students to prepare for engineering, medical education and other fields of higher education.

The beneficiaries comprise of male and female students in the age group of 15-18 years studying in Std. X, XII, and XII in the science field.
