Elementary School

India's governement to all citizens of India, but the education isn't always top of the line. The elementary education starts from first grade to fifth grade.The children are from very poor families. Though the school system in India is good, there are several schools without basic needs such adequate physical education condition, supplies and not enough teachers to teach the children.

The Kumara Foundation goal is to adopt a school (or more) and to improve the basic learning condition, hiring teacher\s, and paying their salaries. WE also would like to provide funding education supplies; books, note books, and other school supplies.

High School

Kumara Foundation's focus is to adopt several rural(village) middle and high schools to provide support for their education. The current major goal for middle and high school to provide small scholarships for the deserving students from grade 6 through 12 as an encouragement and to develop a healthy competition among the students which in turn could improve the overall students academic performance.

Rural area school students and their parents often have very little or no idea regarding available higher education, such as college. The Kumara Foundation assisted with past students ,f,and various people in higher jobs will provide a guidance to help the high school student and their parents regarding the student future education choice and guide them through the application and admission process.The Kumara Foundation and other people have been helping high school students aswell as their parents, to encourage them to go to college and have showed them that there is a possible way to achieve their dreams. The Kumara Foundation highly values education adn believes that every single child has the right to a good education even if they aren't able to afford it. For students who have wonderful grades ,we have decided to give them well deserved scholarships.


Guidance is important to achieve once goal. Some of the student may have idea but without proper guidance to achieve their goal is difficult. It is hard to know the procedure, step to apply for United States or other countries for the higher education students.


If Kumara foundation was approached, it will help in connection to roper networking and guidance to the student’s dream of obtaining higher studies\Post Doctoral Research. For an example, Doctoral student in India, who is submitted thesis and waiting for the comments from the Indian and Foreign examiner and viva, normally take about a year. During which time, Doctoral student work in their department and complete the research article submission process and also start the applying for Post Doctoral fellowship in various countries and learning about the united state, life style. The life style in India and united state or any other country is very different.

The role of Kumara Foundation is to help to connect proper people and ease their application process by guiding them to help to match the field and place of their PDF. At this time Kumara Foundation does not plan to provide any funding, since it is out of our scope.
