Chirag, in Hindi, means a lamp and we would need your help in keeping that lamp alive. The cost of providing education at Chirag School is Rs. 24,000 / child / year. Parents pay less than 10% of this amount. A part of this is covered by Kumaon Grameen Udyog and the rest is raised through the generosity of private donors. Your support will help us continue our endeavor of providing holistic, quality and progressive education to the children who need it the most. 100% of all donations are used towards providing sustained staffing as well as teaching and learning resources for the school.
