The project was initiated 15 years ago by Ms. Mrinalini Desai and was financially supported by EOTO. It assists & guides students from Zilla Parishad School in the Dhamote Village near Neral.
Its core programme includes extra-coaching classes, story-telling, English speaking classes, drawing competitions, medical checkups and awareness camps. As a part of the women’s empowerment programme, one of our volunteers, Ms. Sandhya Pai started a women’s, micro savings group within the village as well.
Today, EOTO has two more villages near Neral under its wing; namely, Kumbhe and Jete.
