At Bharti, there is absolute belief that quality education is the most important tool for development and inclusion in every society. Guided by this enduring idea, Bharti Airtel Foundation was set up in 2000 as the philanthropic arm of the Group to make quality education accessible to underprivileged children across rural India to help them realize their potential.
