DISHA has initiated an English Medium School for children of deprived families in the district of Bhadrak, Odisha. In the last four years of this pilot project we have admitted 86 children from families unable to afford the tuition fees of English Medium Schools.

Besides the quality education through ICT, we also provide a uniform, books, nutritious food and full accompaniment of their progress. In 2010 we started a kindergarten (nursery) class so that children are accompanied by early period and know how to behave in a group, respecting the teachers and classmates.

DISHA has joined hands with Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF) for the pilot project. The support extended by DEF will go towards the salary of at least two teachers at the English Medium School.
