Service through Fellowship is the lifeline of Round Table India. It is through the fellowship of young men that this organization has served the community for many decades. Round Table India started its efforts in helping the community with small projects directed towards service. Over the years, we have grown from strength to strength, and today we are building big projects and have moved over from community service to community development. The concept of National Project for Round Table India was introduced in 1992.

By providing above amenities, we can make this a complete school. Many children are moving to private schools though they cannot afford because these govt schools are missing basic amenities which doesn’t cost much. If we can take up this project and complete in this summer, will help the school to retain the students and attract new students for the next academic year. Most important is drinking water, and hygienic conditions are must for the children. Let’s join our hands to make this happen.
