Bosch neighbourhood schools sent their request and Bosch in partnership with RAAC fulfilled the needs.RAAC got the necessary approvals from the district administration and progress was to be monitored. 

               The aim of this project is to promote quality infrastructure in government schools. Six government schools with primary, middle and higher secondary schools were chosen and after assessing their basic needs, infrastructure support was the need of the hour.
