The local free school in Meerut, UP, teaches kids up to the 6th grade. The teachers at the school have a meager salary and are not working for the money but rather the fulfillment received from helping these poor children. The children are provided with books, stationary, and notebooks from the school - something uncommon to other schools in the area.
One grateful young student says, "My dad sells ice cream and doesn't have money to educate me but because of this school, I am able to study." Another young boy told reporters, "My dad does cleaning work and wasn't planning on educating me. If I hadn't come to this school, I would have never learned to read and write."

This school is working for the betterment of society- as society gets more educated, many things will fall into place. Metropolitan cities have a higher literacy rate and are cleaner and more civilized- poor urban areas will follow suit as they receive more education.
These kids, by attending this school, not only are receiving a basic education, but are understanding their civic duties and will be ideal citizens. In 2010, there were 124 children in the school, and a ratio of 30 students to 1 teacher. In other schools, the ratio is commonly 90 children to 1 teacher.
Due to the greater one-on-one attention and much perseverance of the principal and teachers, this school has an excellent curriculum and the graduates are as well prepared as private school students.
