On 12th June, SNS foundation signed a MoU with Department of Education, Himachal Pradesh State. The two parties were represented by Mr. C.S.Patel, Trustee DCA Foundation and Mr. Ghanshyam Chand, Project Director, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, HP state. With the signing of this MoU, SNS Foundation would be working jointly with the government in improving the quality of education in the 11 government schools of Parwanoo township. The 11 schools being attended by close to 2400 students studying in primary to senior secondary grades, will be covered over the next two years in 3 phases. The first phase beginning July 2014, would focus on 3 primary schools with approx. 500 students. Providing students with additional coaching after school hours, improving existing school infrastructure would be some of the salient features of this partnership. In all aspects of quality of education, the Anand School would play a pivotal role. Since, majority of the 2400 students come from the 15 slums that dot the Parwanoo township, improving hygiene and sanitation conditions of the slums is the another crucial aspect of this engagement.
