Rural Model: Bharti Foundation
Urban Model: ESO's GyanShala
Since inception, the foundation has impacted the lives of ~19000 children by partnering with these two unique and successful models. In the academic year 2019-2020, E&H Foundation is supporting the education of 7500 children in association with the Bharti Foundation and Education Support Organization;s (ESO) GyanShala model.
E&H (Education and Health) Foundation was set up in 2012 with a vision to provide quality health and education to the underprivileged children in the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP), the largest state in India with most dismal human development indicators. After doing in-depth research, E&H Foundation started its journey from Farrukhabad by identifying and collaborating with the following two models for primary education:
Bharti Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Bharti Enterprises, was established in 2000 with an intent to develop a scalable and sustainable education model that can be replicated on a large scale by the government, educational institutions and like-minded organization. With this vision, E&H Foundation partnered with Bharti Foundation in 2012 and set up three schools in Shamsabad district of Uttar Pradesh.
In partnership with Bharti Foundation, E&H opened three primary schools in Farrukhabad district. Currently, the total strength of students in Class 1-5 stands at 720 students.
Gyanshala is one of the largest non-government school education programs for underprivileged children in India, currently operational in 9 districts across 4 states of India. Started by Prof. Pankaj Jain in 2000 in Ahmedabad, Gyanshala’s model is cost effective and scalable and has enriched the lives of over 2,50,000 children since inception. In 2013, E&H foundation partnered with Gyanshala to bring this model to UP, one of the most dismal states in India to address the lack of quality education in the region.
In partnership with Education Support Organization’s (ESO) Gyanshala model, E&H supports education of children from urban slums in Farrukhabad & Lucknow districts. Currently, the total strength of students in Class 1-5 is ~ 6200 students, out of which 50% are girls.
