SNS Foundation signed a MoU with Department of Education, Himachal Pradesh State Government. The two parties were represented by Mr. C. S. Patel, Trustee, Deep C Anand Foundation and Mr. Ghanshyam Chand, Project Director – Himachal Pradesh, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. With the signing of this MoU, SNS Foundation started working jointly with the State Government in order to improve the quality of education in the 11 government-run schools of Parwanoo. ~2,400 students studying in primary and senior secondary grades in these 11 schools were reached out to over the next two years in a phased manner. The first phase began in July 2014 and focused on three primary schools with ~ 500 students. Providing the students with after-school coaching and improving the existing academic infrastructure were the key aspects of this engagement. Since, majority of the ~2,400 students come from ~15 slums that dot Parwanoo, improving hygiene and sanitation in these slums was another crucial aspect of this engagement.
