Story

Almost 50% of Students Commute To School On Foot In India: NAS 2021 Data.

Nearly half of the school-going kids in India travel to their respective schools on foot. As per the National Achievement Survey (NAS) 2021 - Ministry of Education, 48 per cent of students commute to school on foot, and 18 per cent use a bicycle. It also revealed that the total percentage of students using the school and public transport is around 9 per cent each. Meanwhile, 8% of students commute to school via their vehicle (two-wheeler), while just 3% come to school using their four-wheeler.

Akal Academy, under the aegis of The Kalgidhar Society, is always keen to improve the overall educational infrastructure of their schools in rural belts of 5 northern states, and precisely school transport as it is one of the significant aspects which plays a vital role in providing education to the students residing in the countryside. More than 37,500 students from over 6450 villages come to 129 Akal Academies daily, and we provide school transport to students living at a distance ranging from 4 to 60 kilometres. In an urban setup, this was a simple task. In rural areas, though, travelling is not easy as the transport facilities still need to be developed.
