Holistic Education:

Ra Foundation identifies schools that can work seamlessly with our team, towards the emotional, social and academic development of the child by encouraging hobbies/ interests, mentoring & providing remedial classes.

Residential schools:

The core of our program is to provide access to a safe, caring and motivating environment as well as to high-quality education through the residential school format. We partner with good quality residential schools in Panchgani, Nashik and Pune to achieve this.

College Education:

Our kids take up college courses, after taking an aptitude test, to pursue careers of their choice. We support the college kids with a mentorship program as well as take care of their other expenses like stationery and pocket money

Vocational Courses:

The Happy kids program encourages kids to develop their talents and interests even in college. Some of our kids take up vocational courses or talent/ hobby classes to build on their skills and talents.
