Indian Development Foundation, a leading national NGO working for health, education and development, has an excellent track record of nearly three decades of humanitarian service. Networking with over 100 health projects, IDF has also established over 80 Bal Gurukuls (empowerment classes) for the underprivileged children across the nation.
This story is about IDF TILAK BAL GURUKUL run in collaboration with Sudhagad Secondary School, Chindran village, Panvel Taluka, Dist. Raigad, Maharashtra. IDF launched this Bal Gurukul in June 2009 and the students performed very well in their board exams. IDF's Bal Gurukul is a proven method to provide `right education'.
Earlier status in Chindran school
320 children -- 60% girls.
No potable water/ no sanitation facility/ no electricity.
