WHO WE ARE

ISET Foundation has been established mainly for the promotion of science education focus in the suburban and rural area of India. In India, nearly 70 percent of the country’s population lives in rural areas where, for the first time since independence, the overall growth rate of population has sharply declined, according to the latest census. Of the 121 crore Indian, 83.3 crores live in rural areas while 37.7 crores stay in urban areas, said the census of India’s 2011 Provisional Population Totals of Rural-Urban Distribution in the country, released by Union Home Secretary. In India, the science education is having little strength towards development and innovation than other developing and developed countries mainly in rural.

According to UGC, approximately 20 million students get enrollment in various courses yearly, among 19%, students only enroll in science and 16% students enrolled in engineering and technology that’s why we choose to work in the promotion of the Indian science education. Along with the promotion of Scientific education, it has been focused on awareness towards health issues, consolidate Science and Society, Science & technology based agriculture. It has been also focused to build Healthcare centers, build free science libraries, and build scientific institutions in the rural areas.

  1. Also aim to organize health-related awareness program in rural and suburban areas and to promote modern agricultural techniques among the farmer’s and makes to aware them about modern way to increase the yield of the crops and also educate them to adopt modern and economic agriculture instead of traditional one.
