DILBAR AND ROHIT SINGH PARIHAR
The area for the construction of the school was given to the Shin Shiva Charitable Trust by the family Singh Parihar who is resident in Dhmond. Father Dilbar and son Rohit are tireless active to advance this school project.
Dilbar – President of the Shin Shiva Charitable Trust – always finds the right word to establish good contacts with people in politics, school authorities and surrounding population.
Rohit has during the last three years intensely overtaken all duties around operating the school. With great patience and perseverance he is a true friend of children and teachers and manages with huge staying power to find the golden middle between the vision of the school, official requirements, wishes of parents and teachers and what is already possible on site.

Besides, they train the teachers in a very special and comprehensive manner.
