Infosys Foundation – Working with the Ramakrishna Mission in Aalo, Arunachal Pradesh

The poorest part of a country is often the most neglected. The Ramakrishna Mission has set up a school in Aalo, an inaccessible and backward tribal area in the West Siang District of Arunachal Pradesh. The center is more than a brick-and-mortar school and is a kind of umbrella organization that includes 16 non-formal schools, coaching centers, a dairy, a bakery unit, a small farming facility, a dispensary, and a printing press. It also provides transportation for students to and from their villages.
