Here, in India, it’s absolutely basic to have a knowledge of fundamental English, the only language that truly unites the people from the different parts, speaking different languages. A working knowledge of English also facilitates getting jobs in whichever field. Shanti started with four girls admitted to an English medium school in 1997. Today (2017) it has more than 150 children admitted in different schools. These children are alert, sensitive and creative. After finishing their school around 4 p.m they come happily to Shanti for further coaching. Qualified teachers guide them from Monday to Friday from 5 p.m to 8 p.m.
