KPTL understands the critical role education plays in rural development and the overall socioeconomic development of the country. Considering that basic education is a prerequisite, KPTL has undertaken to develop Smt. Sugni Devi Pukhraj Munot Government Senior Secondary School located in Pipar City, Jodhpur, Rajasthan as an Adarsh School through infrastructural intervention. The Company has changed the entire landscape of the School and is on the way to develop it as an Adarsh School.
Through its constant efforts, KPTL undertakes to not only develop and renovate the schools but also provide access to books and learning materials, provisions for digital learning through mini science centre, provision of computers and laptops etc. thus advancing digitized educational intervention for these students.
KALPATARU SKILL DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY
Kalpataru Foundation runs Kalpataru Skill Development Academy to provide residential practical skill development training. The NSS currently estimates that of the 470 million people of working age in India, only 10% receive any kind of training at all, thereby emphasizing the need for a higher number of skilled workers across various sectors.
The Academy is currently run in Durgapur, West Bengal and Trichy, Tamil Nadu for providing training in primarily 3 trades – Welding, Fitters and Grinders. It shortlists candidates in batches of 50 / 20 per batch with selected candidates being given lodging and boarding facilities.
UPLIFTMENT OF MUK-BADHIR SCHOOLS

OTHER CSR INTERVENTIONS
KPTL has also undertaken other CSR interventions, which include School Bus for commutation of Badhir students in Rajasthan, Scholarship Programs, interactive Mini Science Centres for practical education in Govt. schools etc.
