1. Why Eternal Charitable Foundation?
In India majority of the higher educational institutions are urban centric. As a result rural population is deprived of quality education. It is seen that gross enrolment ratio is very poor in these rural areas. The situation is even worse for female population in regard to gross enrolment ratio. So it is an effort of the trust to spread rural education.

2. What is value based education (VbE)?
Values-based Education (VbE) is an educational framework which gives equal status to both character development and academic attainment. It improves students' willingness and ability to learn; and enhances their social skills, emotional literacy and wellbeing.
Values-based Education is a combination of philosophy, methodology, teaching and learning materials. It is inspirational, as it empowers pupils to be confident, reflective learners, builds high morale.

3. Why 500 schools?
The ultimate objective of this mission is to promote peace and harmony in the society by creating good human material through these schools. These rural schools will be the temples of modern education. The surveys have shown that Not only social evils, but these students also contribute immensely to India's GDP.

4. Why focus is on North India?
In relation to north, the education infrastructure in south is already much more developed. The quality of education imparted in south is quite good. Geographically, the masses in south are well covered with the educational infrastructure. But in north, especially hilly and rural areas, these parameters are poor and need urgent attention. The spread of drug malady in north needs to be urgently addressed to keep the nation strong. The week northern states would result into weaker India thus threatening the soverenity.

5. Why traditional school uniform?
We use traditional Indian Kurta-pyjama unisexual uniforms for both boys and girls in our schools. On one hand it is totally non-provocative and on the other It essentially protects the body from extreme weather and a renders sense of gender equity. It gels with the concept of rural schools.

6. Why a head gear in ECF schools is mandatory?
A head gear is mandatory in all ECF schools as ours are the rural academies which follow the Indian tradition. Head gear is good for health as it protects the child from extreme weather conditions .

7. Is ECF an international organization?
ECF is an International trust and having supporters from different counteries. ECF funds are deployed in India to benefit underprivileged Indian children in rural areas and a small proportion is also invested in local causes.

8. Does ECF receive government funding?
As an NGO (non-government organization), ECF does not receive any direct government funding.

9. In that case, how does ECF raise resources?
- donations from concerned individuals and organizations.
- sales of products
Some may sponsor the costs of education and/or health inputs to a child or group of children.

10. The problem is HUGE! Will my small contribution make a difference?
Sure it will. In fact, we estimate that something small even can pay for a child's education and health. And, trust us, all those small contributions put together add up to a LOT!
