Currently, 128 million children are enrolled in the Indian public education system and are unable to cope with the consequences of poverty, which leads to reduced attentiveness, lack of curiosity, demotivation and anger, etc. The Indian public education system lacks the area expertise to equip these children with the necessary skills to tackle poverty, cope with their reality, and become healthy, effective learners.
