The Bright Star Academy is a free primary school that operates for grades nursery to 7. The school is the only free English Medium school in Alwar, Rajasthan. Currently, the school has 113 registered students of diverse backgrounds including Sikh, Hindu, and Muslim, the majority of which are categorized as scheduled castes by the government.
The school was originally being operated by Bhai Mani Singh Seva Sanstha. Due to financial difficulties, the school was at risk of closing. This is when Bhai Mani Singh Seva Sanstha reached out to SAF International to partner to manage the school and ensure its sustainability. SAF invested to expand the school and both organizations have been jointly operating the school since 2017.
If not for the academy, these students would not be in school today and destined to live in poverty. SAF International is committed to managing and further expanding the school to provide free quality education to underprivileged children.
