    The Satya Bharti School Programme provides free quality education to first-generation learners in rural India, with a special focus on the girl child. In addition to free education, the schools also provide free mid-day meals, textbooks, notebooks, shoes, and other school items to all the students.

    The programme focuses on activities both inside and outside the classroom so that students learn academically and develop character.

  • Satya Bharti Quality Support Program

    Is a program that works along with Government schools to improve the overall schooling experience for the children. It works with teachers and stakeholders such as parents to bridge gaps and catalyze changes to improve the learning experience for students.

    The Program specifically works to empower the school leaders and teachers to undertake initiatives, gain confidence, and develop skills. In addition, it aims to nurture students' sense of well-being and confidence and equip them with life skills.

    Finally, it also engages with parents, community members, and other stakeholders to ensure that changes for growth are efficiently implemented.

  • Satya Bharti Learning Centre Programme

    Bharti Foundation's Satya Bharti Learning Centres Programme is an initiative that aims to bridge the education gap of out-of-school children to mainstream them into regular schools. The first phase of the program was initiated under a partnership with the Government of Rajasthan, which then extended to Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand.

    Through the programme, the foundation selects and trains volunteers, identifies children who have dropped-out, and provides relevant educational assistance to each child with the aim of mainstreaming the student into schools.

    To ensure that the enrolled students remain in school, the foundation provides regular parent counselling and conducts community mobilisation events to build awareness and community ownership regarding the children's education.

  • Satya Bharti Abhiyan

    The aim of the Satya Bharti Abhiyan initiative is to improve rural household sanitation facilities in Punjab. In addition to rural household sanitation, the initiative built toilets for girls in government schools in rural Ludhiana, where no such facilities existed.

    In order to spread awareness and inculcate a behavioural change, students from various Satya Bharti Schools reached out to nearby villages to educate villagers about the benefits of maintaining sanitation and using household toilets. These schools, in collaboration with government schools and other partners, spread awareness of the dangers of open defecation to all the villages in the Ludhiana district.
