Raipur (Chhattisgarh) [India], January 17 (ANI):The children of tribal-dominated Surguja are undergoing a significant metamorphosis to achieve their future goal as Adani Vidya Mandir has taken up the task of providing quality education at free of cost.
Adani Vidya Mandir, an initiative of Adani Group, is ensuring quality education to children from LKG to class 11th, informed the school administration.
The administration further elaborated that the school, located at village Salhi-around 60 kilometres from Ambikapur, with well-equipped laboratories and infrastructure is not just ensuring education at free of cost, instead the institute is also providing free meals, books, stationary items, uniforms and bus service to its students. While providing free meals to the students, the group ensures that every student gets proper nutrition.
According to the management, the parents of students studying here have a unique association with the institute, as the children of women engaged in the preparation of meals are also studying in Adani Vidya Mandir. Around 1,000 people, particularly students and staff, take advantage of the meal facility together.
