About the Charity
Tamarind Tree is a Maharashtra Govt. recognised school providing education (Pre Primary to class 8) to first generation learners from the tribal community of Warlis. Unlike a normal school, it is structured as a computer lab – where students learn virtually on Tamarind Tree’s Learning Management platform. Besides virtual learning, there are co-curricular activities. Meals are also provided to the students. Pre-COVID-19, students were charged Rs.500-750 p.m. With COVID-19, the entire activity has shifted to Tamarind Tree’s online portal MyBigCampus with no fees charged. This was subsequently scaled up and the material made freely available. Today, there are 400+ students, with 50 trained volunteers assisting them and more than 22 courses conducted since May.
