In December, RMF’s Team India recorded the inauguration of a boarding school for 150 to 200 girls in Dattigaon, a tribal village in Dhar District in the state of Madhya Pradesh.

The new boarding school marks a progressive step towards moving the community around Dattigaon forward, as these young girls, all members of the indigenous Bhil tribe, are the first in their families to be able to pursue higher education and learn English.

Team India’s aim with this school that now serves ten villages is to build a network that supports their students as they develop skills that may eventually enable them to escape the deteriorating situation of poverty, exploitation and diseases among India’s rural population.
