Tata Power, India's largest integrated power company, has always been committed to supporting the national cause of providing education to the children living in and around its plant operations. Taking this commitment forward, Tata Power’s Mundra UMPP, in collaboration with the NGO ‘Swadeep’, and Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) scheme of the Government, has established Sagar Shala – Community School, a support school for the fishermen children in Tragadi Bunder. The support school currently benefits over 90 fishermen children living around the Tragadi Bunder settlement. This Sagar Shala-Community School initiative helps to bring children of migrant children fishermen community back to school and is proving to be an effective way of providing them quality education in the innovative tent school.

The objective of this initiative is to ensure quality education to the children through trained teachers, teaching and learning material, and tent school. Fishermen’s children, who migrate with their parents, had no options to continue their schooling due to lack of proper infrastructure, thereby, depriving them of their right to education. Through “Sagar Shala-Community School”, the Company aims to bridge this gap and ensure the continuation of education of these children, thereby, developing them as independent learners.
