RACE CONTRIBUTION IN CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) ASSET

Education is a fundamental human right that should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or location. In India, access to quality education has been a significant challenge for many years, with many children dropping out of school due to factors such as lack of infrastructure and resources, access to quality education, or family responsibilities.

Statistical reports shows that the Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) for primary education in India is 99.1%. However, the enrollment rate is lower in rural areas and for children from economically weaker sections. Also, the dropout rates are higher for children from families not having adequate resources.

The government of India has taken various initiatives to improve the education system for children from low-income groups. Some of these initiatives include the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, the Mid-Day Meal Scheme, and the National Program for Education of Girls at Elementary Level. 

While the government has made significant efforts to improve education for children from low-income groups, there is still a long way to go. More efforts are needed to ensure that children from low-income families have access to quality education and the resources needed to succeed.

However, educating these children is crucial for their betterment and empowerment. Also, it will play a crucial role in breaking the cycle of poverty. 

By providing quality education to children in rural India, RACE can empower them to pursue their dreams, create opportunities for themselves and their families, and contribute to the growth and development of their communities. Education and skill development can also help to bridge the gap between urban and rural areas and promote inclusive growth. Therefore, it is essential to invest in education and skill development to provide equal opportunities for all children in India to access quality education.

Race also took the initiative to support the children by providing them with any study related tools and resources to help students develop the skills they need for future success.

RACE plays a significant role in supporting scholars in education and encouraging talents. Race is making a positive impact on communities by improving educational outcomes and contributing to the development of the skills and talents of individual children. Additionally, supporting education is also helping Race to build stronger relationships with their partners and investors in the upcoming future.
