“Education is one of the most powerful

instruments for reducing poverty and

inequality. Education is equally key to

enhance India’s competitiveness in the

global economy. Therefore, ensuring

access to quality education for all, in

particular for the poor and rural

population, is central to the economic

and social development of India.”

About Us

FCS Foundation was conceived to bring similar level of education to

underprivileged children in rural areas as is available to affluent urban society.

Starting with small programs, we have grown to serve more than 6,700 children

with annual budgets of Rs 15 crores (US $3 million). It is a measure of our good

work that Government of India, Government of State of Punjab, Corporations, and

Enlightened citizens whole heartedly support us .

Currently, more than 500 teachers and support staff are working on full time or

contractual basis to help us achieve our goals.

rural area doesn’t mean that we can consider

our job done just by provisioning sub-standard
