Sahasra Deepika Foundation for Education provides education, a home, and care for children who are orphaned or whose single parent cannot afford to care for them. Currently, elementary age students attend school on our campus through a unique public-private partnership. Middle school students attend a nearby school. Through linkages with corporations and organizations in the area, we work to provide enrichment in art, music and science, along with homework help. We also are working on an outreach program to help students in the local community.
