Work and Achievements
Bharti Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Bharti Enterprises was established in 2000 with a vision. "To help underprivileged children and young people of our country realize their potential"
The flagship- a rural education initiative of Bharti Foundation, the Satya Bharti School Program is celebrating 10 years of successful implementation as it continues to provide quality education, completely free of cost, to underprivileged children with a special emphasis on the girl child. The 254 Satya Bharti Schools operational across the states of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu reach out to over 41,000 children (49% girls). Under the Satya Bharti Quality Support Program the learnings and best practices from Satya Bharti Schools have been taken into Government schools. The program partners with over 130 Government schools in the states of Haryana, Rajasthan, Delhi, Jammu & Kashmir and Telengana with over 40,000 children.
The Satya Bharti Learning Centre Program is aimed at bridging the learning gap of out of school children and mainstreaming them into age appropriate classes in regular Government schools. Operating in the states of Rajasthan and Jharkhand, the program has impacted close to 23,000 children.
Under the Satya Bharti Abhiyan, Bharti Foundation has adopted Ludhiana district (rural) and is constructing individual toilets in village households lacking such facilities and also separate toilets for girls in Government schools where no such facilities exist, encompassing over 900 villages across the district.
Nyaya Bharti was launched in November 2015 and helps deserving and underprivileged undertrials languishing in jails across the country for minor offences, by assisting them with legal and financial assistance and also promoting awareness about an individual’s constitutional right to legal defense.
