It is a well known fact that India is backward in terms of its education system
In 2020, India reported a literacy rate of 77.7%, wherein Kerala emerged as the most literate state with 96.2% literacy rate, followed by Delhi and Uttarakhand for the second and third position respectively. Andhra Pradesh reported the lowest literacy rate of 66.4%, followed by Rajasthan at 69.7%.
Historically, kids from well-to-do families could only get the luxury of education and the conditions haven’t changed years later too.
While the gap between the rich and poor is invariably increasing with each passing year, and with the emergence of the middle class the gap is all the more visible. We at Martin Foundation believe to change the way India tackles educational and economic inequalities.
Our aim is to bridge the gap between the poor and the rich, and ensure that all students get equal education irrespective of their economic status. We reach out to different schools in order to support the education by adopting different schools.
We are grateful on the contributions made from the group on Cyclone Gaja
Cyclone Gaja slithered across the coastal districts of Tamil Nadu as the most powerful and most damaging calamity on record to hit the delta region. It floated gradually over the land devastating pieces of the Nagapattinam, Cuddalore, Thanjavur, Tiruvarur, Pudukottai, Dindigul, Trichy, Karur, Sivagangai, Ramnad, and Karaikal causing extraordinary flooding and harm in the delta regions.
