Our Vision is to give academic training parallel with Skill training so that students are ready to be employed when they finish schooling. Equip them with life skills and to develop them as a complete personality.
Our Mission is to see that no child is denied training or abused for want of academic learning skills.
Every child has potential and we plan to bring that out in the best possible way.
