SAARP Foundation believes that introducing science to the rural people would change their perception towards their means of earning, their health problems, their food and other habits, their environment and the issues they face in agriculture, thereby making them capable of creating their ways that would lead to their freedom of changing their lives to a better one
SAARP Foundation was formed out of conversations and lively debates of its founders, and the influential and supportive friends who were there in the early days. They were there when its purpose was defined. They were there when it was named and they were there when the first person was hired – the person who would set the standard for all of the others who followed.
The primary beneficiary will be government School students. Government school curriculum helps children grasp complex concepts through SAARP hands-on Science methods. In the purest sense, hands-on Science is learning by doing. It involves teaching the students on how to observe everything around them and plan a process to test their hypothesis, put the process into motion and drive it to successful completion. In the end, they should be able to explain the results they have obtained from the process.
