  • One Thousand Watt Smiles...
  • The parents of the Podar schools (along with the management), initiated a unique project - the adoption of 1000 tribal girls.

    The ‘Human capital cell’ ideated the plan in concert with the Principals of Podar Schools to help 1000 tribal girls in Maharashtra who were deprived of educational opportunities.

    The Chief minister of Maharashtra, Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh distributed kits etc. to some of the tribal girls on International Women’s Day ( 8th March).
  • Helping The Challenged
  • Podar School- students, teachers and parents have always had a soft corner for visually and hearing impaired children and have devised systems to integrate their education along with normal students.

    Visually Challenged girl students decorated palms of parents with a wide range of ‘mehandi’ designs and entertained them with a medley of songs and music.

    The event helped collect Rs.1,21,000/- from parents and students within just two hours.

    Podars matched it with a donation of Rs.1,11,000/- to help give wings to the project.

    Further larger funding is being worked out.
