An initiative of school on wheels for children, the programme is designed especially for the poor and vulnerable tribal group (PVTG) communities.

The programme will serve approximately 40,000 students of classes I-V, belonging to PVTG communities in Angul, Jajpur, Keonjhar, Rayagada, Malkangiri, Kandhamal, and Mayurbhanj. The new innovative learning pedagogy will definitely benefit a continuous learning experience to the tribal students.
