At SAI International, we believe in providing complete hand-holding support to lesser privileged schools locally, in an attempt to elevate their quality of education as well as school-wide development. Since the year 2010, SAI has adopted schools for bringing about this holistic development. These Schools are adopted to address a gamut of issues over a period of time. Selection of school is based off of location and evident need of each institution.
The areas include : Infrastructure Development, Teachers Training, Skill enhancement of students, Youth Leadership Development, Health, Safety and Security.
