Nirantara Foundation was formed in 2008 to establish low-cost schools in urban slums. Four schools were started during 2008 for children of microfinance borrowers of Nirantara Community Services. A school targeting middle & high income segments was started during 2009 with a dual purpose to address issues of sustainability of the Foundation and also because the founders experienced lack of quality schools in Bidar for their own children.
