Message from the desk of Hon’ble Secretary, Konkan Education Trust
Dedicated to enriching the lives of underprivileged children, Konkan Education Trust, Kumta envisions a future where children can fulfill their dreams. Our educational programs have changed the lives of lot of children in our institutions and have brought hope to many who need support and motivation so that they too can achieve what everyone hopes for a better life. We basically collect donations from people who believe in giving their support directly/indirectly in educating children.
Since the inception of our institutions, every academic year, we have been adopting economically backward talented students and laying a solid foundation for their future endeavors by providing them absolutely 100% FREE education (including textbooks, uniforms, meals, school vehicle facility etc.)
Meanwhile, the pandemic has struck us. COVID is out bursting everywhere. One of the most affected victims of this pandemic are children who now have no access to schools. While a lot of children have the means for online classes, underprivileged children are still deprived of learning as they have no access to computers or smartphones. These children already have had difficult journeys, having fought the shackles of poverty, child labor, and much more to finally reach school. But the pandemic has reversed their years of struggle.
For plenty of such children, education has come to a halt. They can’t afford smartphones, can’t count on the support of parents for home learning. Our Trust is providing underprivileged children access to continuous learning. Despite everything, they have not given up on education, they continue to dream.
Join hands with us to help these little dreamers continue their education. We assure you that every single penny shall be utilized for Education and Children’s Welfare purpose. We look forward for help either financially or in-kind from good Samaritans. The funds we receive are not only used for the development of the school, but also for helping needy children. As an institution, we are very aware of our duties, and make sure that we carry them out with full responsibility.
Make a difference by contributing amount for the welfare of a child and addressing issues that promote the overall development of the child from education and other necessary requirements. We have changed the lives of a large number of children every year and still goes on. There are more children caught in the clutches of despair.
YOU ARE THEIR ONLY HOPE.

The amount from this fund will be used to provide additional pay pocket to teachers based on their excellent teaching ability. Note that the pay-scale at our schools is lower than comparable Government-funded schools. Thus the bonus provide opportunities to recognize and retain our good faculty.
