Azim Premji Schools:

Our first set of schools began operations in mid-2012 and are located in the following states (districts): Uttrakhand (Uddhamsinghnagar, Uttarkashi), Rajasthan (Tonk, Sirohi), Karnataka (Yadgir) and Chattisgarh (Dhamtari).

We see our schools as places where a child can be herself; a place that is her “own;” where she can enjoy and challenge herself; a place where she is safe, cherished and valued.

We hope to start a process of learning which our children can possibly continue for the rest of their lives.

Our schools:

  • focus on children from disadvantaged backgrounds

  • will eventually serve children between 3 and 18 years of age from pre-school to Class 12

  • are affiliated to State Boards of Education

  • have the state language as the medium of instruction - students will also learn English

  • focus on health and nutrition as a critical input

  • are free of cost for our students
