Music Teachers
In music there is sound, tone, melody, harmony, rhythm, composition and performance of various instruments/singers. By listening to (correlating and understanding) these, the students (and potential students) will have an overall better and enhanced understanding and mental development. Presently, we have provided music teacher to

  1. Primary School, Kulethi, Champawat
  2. Primary School, Subhash Nagar, Haldwani.

The following music instruments have been provided to all the 8 schools:

  1. Tabla
  2. Harmonium

Physical Training
Games & sports help students in personality building & instill in them various traits like team sprit, perseverance, stress handling etc. All the government schools have a slot available for physical training; however children will enjoy playing sports much more than just working out. Realizing this we have provided various sports equipments to the adopted government schools which include football, cricket bat & balls, badminton rackets, volley balls etc.

Computer Teachers
Once there was this kid who came from a village to a town where he had to catch a train with his relative. Now, when he saw the trains, he said, "Wow!! You people have houses made of iron & running on wheels".
