Parikrma school project

Our GSE team visited a third Rotary Club of Bangalore service project. Parikrma, which means "completing the circle," is a newer school in Bangalore serving 900 kids at 4 locations. It began in 2003 to serve the poor kids from the slums ($15 / monthly average family income) but has had tremendous success. It has 97% attendence and only 1% drop out rates.

Skulka Bose, founder and CEO, was formerly a CEO in the corporate world and has now created an incredible new education concept.
