Teach The Kids
“Education is what comes to rescue, when everything falls apart”
We believe that when God has bestowed us with such a standard of education, it is our moral duty to help those who couldn’t wake up to the ray of knowledge.
An auditorium is being constructed within the college premises where workers did hard labour and their kids used to roam around idly. It was then, that the idea of teaching them the basic struck. Our college resides in the lap of God, so it occurred us, the knowledge has to be spread in every corner.
