The eighth All India Education Survey (AISES) conducted by National Council of Educational Research and Technology (NCERT) covering the Indian school education system captures more than 1.3 Million (13,06,992) recognized schools across the country in each habitation, village and urban areas. 83.3% of these schools are in rural areas! Staggering isn't it.
Out of this 1.3Million recognized schools, close to 250,000 schools are private schools representing 19% of overall schools. The importance of private participation is underlined by the fact that even as only 19% of the total schools are private, they dispense education to 45% of India’s total enrolled students of 23 Crore (228,994,454)!

QED believes that CSR Partnership with corporates is the answer.
The basic objective of CSR in these days is to maximize the company's overall impact on the society and stakeholders. CSR policies, practices and programs are being comprehensively integrated by an increasing number of companies throughout their business operations and processes. Corporate India today treats CSR as not just another form of indirect expense but a compelling responsibility towards initiating a social change and creating a profound impact.
