About Us

TRF (an acronym that stands for The Restoring Force) is a registered Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) that independently works in the area of education and vocational training.

Despite India’s recent success in setting a scorching pace in new industries such as Back Office Processing, Software and Manufacturing, there is a deep divide between those who are part of this industrial revolution and those who are left by the wayside, especially in India’s villages. They have little access to the retail revolution, to the explosion of schools in our cities, to the opportunities for employment that these new sectors offer. Stuck with schools that have few teachers, practically no infrastructure, and no change in sight, they can only eye the progress bandwagon from a distance.

TRF believes that a little help can go a long way in providing access to opportunity, especially to children who live and study in India’s villages. Given a chance, they are eager to grab at every opportunity for success. Given little, they go a long way. At TRF, we are convinced that the reawakening of India will come about from its rural base through quality education.

Founded in 1997, TRF became a registered unit on April 20, 2001. (Registration No. S 39241). All contributions to TRF are tax-exempt under Section 80 G of the Indian IT Act.

TRF got its exposure by working in schools where it:

  • Provided the lab equipment’s for the Physics, Chemistry and Biology labs
  • Toilets for the girl students, boys and teachers
  • Furniture for the school
  • Drinking water

In addition we carried out counseling sessions creating awareness on what jobs were available after they pass out of school. This experiment was a huge success and the results of the students soared from 34% to 99/100%.

Simultaneously we installed Solar lights in a village which was a huge success. TRF then developed a very rugged solar light for the villages.

We chose those villages which were totally neglected due to the size being small and the caste of the people living there being low. We were attracted to the solar light project as it seemed to have maximum impact.
