In rural India, thousands of schools are dilapidated, unsafe, unsanitary, and unstimulating learning environments for children. The Transform Lives one school at a time initiative empowers schoolchildren in rural India, providing them with opportunities for a better future. With your support, Sehgal Foundation transforms schools to meet the critical needs for clean drinking water, separate sanitation facilities for boys and girls, a hygienic kitchen/food-serving area, safe classrooms with seats and desks, and the vital life skills education and digital literacy that give kids a chance for a better tomorrow.


Sehgal Foundation (US) matches individual donations one to one to further support S M Sehgal Foundation projects in India.

First initiated in late 2016, the campaign garnered support from donors worldwide to transform five rural schools in district Alwar, Rajasthan. Implementation is in full swing and the results are inspiring. School management committees and community members in the villages are engaged in the results and the work is now slated to reach ten more schools. With your support, more empowered schoolchildren will become empowered citizens who are essential to the future of India.

Change has begun in five schools, and many more throughout rural India are still waiting!
