Education plays a pivotal role in empowering society and effectively addressing various societal challenges related to healthcare, poverty, population, unemployment, and human rights. It acts as the primary means to cultivate a nation of responsible citizens.
On April 1, 2010, India took a significant step by making education a fundamental right for every child under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, also known as the Right to Education Act (RTE). This act made it compulsory to provide essential, cost-free, and mandatory education to children aged between 6 and 14 in India.
However, even after several decades, education has not reached numerous children across the country. The socio-economic circumstances of parents and the absence of sufficient educational resources within schools obstruct many children from getting their basic right to education.
