Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

These children lack the exposure to the world in which they live, and they do not have any other option than to study in the Government-aided schools. With an objective to meet the needs of providing quality and joyful education with needed exposure to these rural students, RACHANA proposes to undertake a program that will initiate the process of development for rural children.
