There is an old saying in Asia.
If you are planning for a year, sow rice;
If you are planning for a decade, plant trees;
If you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.

Education is an engine for change. While India's economy is growing by leaps and bounds, many still do not have access to learning opportunities. The best hope to making a lasting and transformative change is to give all of India’s children access to quality education – education that gives them the tools to help themselves.

With the support of countless volunteers and donors, CLT has been working since 1997 to give children in rural, under-served areas education they deserve.
