The school has been running for over 20 years by her aunt who left her life in New Delhi to start this school which aims to provide affordable education till High School for all children of the town who belong to low-income groups.

Since the town has incessant power cuts, Richa has now stepped in help to set up a solar project for the school so that the school never stops operation due to the lack of power which causes hindrance for regular day to day functioning of the school. Richa is working on the project alongside and the project will be ready and running by early next year.
