The Fabindia School story:
The Fabindia School, located in Bali, Rajasthan, India, was established in 1992 by William Bissell, the managing director of Fabindia, a global retail brand specialising in handmade and eco-friendly products. The school's motto is "Education builds character, and character creates a nation." Initially, the school was to educate the children of Fabindia's rural artisans, who were part of the company's supply chain. Over time, the school expanded its reach, and now it offers quality education to over 750 children from across the region. The school provides education from kindergarten to the 12th grade and follows the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) curriculum. It also emphasises practical and hands-on learning through extracurricular activities like art, sports, and music. In addition to academia, The Fabindia School provides health and hygiene education to its students to ensure they lead healthy and fulfilling lives. The Fabindia School's unique approach to education has received recognition and acclaim from various entities. In 2009, the Rajasthan State Education Department declared it 'the best school in rural Rajasthan'. The school's success has also inspired other companies to start similar initiatives, promoting the cause of quality education for all. The Green Schools Award Program by the Centre Of Science selected the school for national recognition, listed as the Best Schools of the World award in 2022, and has wide recognition. In conclusion, The Fabindia School's contribution to the field of education, especially for underprivileged children, is commendable. Its commitment to providing quality education, practical and hands-on learning, and health and hygiene makes it a model for educational institutions worldwide.
