From Enabling the Deprived to Enabling our Future

A Paradigm Shift initiated by the Students themselves...stories of empowerment. In the summer of 2007 graduates from class X challenged the Trustees to reconsider the trust's slogan of "Enabling the Deprived", which smacks of 'charity' and inappropriately describes their condition. According to them, they felt empowered from the time they entered Sanjan Nagar and with each year passing empowerment became more concrete with enhanced capabilities. The Trustees heard the young girls and suggested that they should rewrite the script themselves as they deemed fit. The very next day they proposed " Enabling Our Future". It was readily accepted as the true beneficiaries, the children had spoken and yes Sanjan Nagar Public Education Trust is indeed a journey and a tribute to " Enabling Our Future "


Since 1994 this was provided free of cost. However, due to the unprecedented inflation and difficult economic situation we needed to review the sustainability of the program in a more pragmatic manner as many families can afford a modest fee ( at one fourth the cost).. SNPET recognizes that some families will still be in need and will be supported through the Trust funds.

In the light of these current realities SNPET has decided to embark on a path for modest user charges/fees since September 2011 onwards.
