Our Mission

“If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed;
If in terms of 10 years, plant a tree;
If in terms of a 100 years, educate people”
Confucius

 

We have set out to to set up schools as many schools as possible with a local partners. These schools will become self sustaining, and will provide good quality education to children not only from the slums but also from remote regions of India. Educo recognises that the set up costs of a new school are considerable – hence we are reaching out for your involvement. Once a school is set up, the impact is tremendous..

Educo typically ends up educating not only the children, but the teachers, the parents, and the local community.
