Sumedha in essence started as an education support programme through which a dynamic network of students-parents-teachers from the primary level of education up to post graduation have been formed. This is supported by a strong nexus within the community of various stakeholders including the local Government officials, policy makers, elected representatives, academicians and aspiring youngsters. The growth of this programme was extremely promising and rapid. Today, Sumedha has benefited over 2, 50,000 students and 3000 teachers from about 300 schools.e.
