Mid-day meals are known to significantly increase attendance levels in classrooms. They also feed children a nutritious meal, that otherwise may not be available to them. The Hans Foundation will fund the construction and operation of massive state-of-the- art kitchens to provide mid-day meals to hundreds of thousands of children across Uttarakhand.
In addition, The Hans Foundation has committed to fund computer training courses in 500 schools in the state, bringing a highly vital skill to thousands of underprivileged children.
Improving the quality of education requires investments in teacher training as well as creating environments that foster growth and learning in children. Additional large-scale programs will be taken on to increase the state educational productivity of Uttarakhand.
