Resetting her compass, Samina Bano, then a Chicago-based consultant with Deloitte Consulting, got off the corporate ladder to champion RTE in UP by starting Bharat Abhyudaya Foundation (BAF)


BAF decided to play the role of Change Maker that could enable effective implementation of RTE by getting govt. on board and working with state functionaries in U.P. to unleash its full potential


BAF moved in swiftly to bridge alliance across a multitude of stakeholders by creating an interface in the form of a Round Table Discussion to hold dialogues on challenges as well as charting solutions


BAF initiated RTE Info Sessions and Workshops, assisted government in preparing a system design, voluntarily took up the responsibility of mass awareness, and facilitated a 24×7 Helpline Number


Innovations were brought in existing models to achieve 17,209 admissions across 49 districts of Uttar Pradesh, while bringing about several policy changes and Government Orders in 2016


RightWalk Foundation (RWF) facilitated implementation of an integrated Online MIS Portal for Application, Lottery, School Allocation and Admissions under RTE Act
