Free Education to underprivileged children in India

The Education system of India has challenges of various ordeal. Be it the population of India or the dearth of facilities in schools. While the critics underline statistics of inequity, many organizations and even individuals are putting concrete efforts to transform education system in India.

As education is becoming more and more costly, there are concerns for people who can't afford education fees. But much to their relief there are many NGO's who are providing financial help and guidance to students who are interested in higher education.
One such organization i came across is 'Pratham'. It is providing free education in India since 1994.
As a part of their various program, they focus on improving the level of education in India.
They also address issues like providing education to a country of more than 1.2 Billion people.



It forms a cyclic structure of providing Secondary Education to needy students completely for Free!
The student should help organization by passing knowledge to the kids in their villages by
gathering a group of 20 children and teach them.

As far as Higher Education is concerned, the solution for cost effectiveness in education comes from Europe wherein European Universities are providing scholarships to students based on merit..Students can also work if they wish to for part-time.

All these efforts provides hope for better future where education can be free and accessible to everyone.

The future of younger generation seems bright.
