From the Desk of Chairman

ERD Foundation has emerged as the fastest growing educational network of the North East. Central IT College (under Sikkim Manipal University), Regional College of Higher Education (affiliated to NEHU, Shillong), Regional Institute of Science and Technology (an engineering college affiliated to NEHU, Shillong & approved by AICTE, New Delhi) and University of Science and Technology, Meghalaya are the flagship institutes of the Foundation.

In April 2008 the trust took the first step in school education by establishing Central Public School (CPS) (affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi) at Patharkandi in Karimganj district of Assam. The main aim behind opening the school in a rural and interior area was providing quality education and infrastructure to meritorious students abundant in rural areas who are unable to flourish their talent for want of proper guidance and financial support; the benefits obviously going to children belonging to backward, financially weak and minority communities of the society.

Encouraged by the success and popularity of CPS-P, ERDF is privileged to have Central Public School-B at Gyan Parishar, Umarpur, Badarpur, Karimganj (affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi) at your service - a school that has been set upon the lines of Central Public School, Patharkandi.

The Foundation will go out of its way to counsel and extend all support to the students who pass out from this school to enable them to get admission in post school professional courses of their choice. It plans to provide counseling and guidance to students after their completion of the 10th standard. Based on their mindset and ability, they will be guided into the fields of arts, science and commerce. Moreover, after completion of 12th standard, the school will provide coaching for different competitive exams like AIEEE, CBSE-PMT, IIT-JEE, CEE, NDA and other entrance exams of various institutes by experienced faculty so that students can avail seats in various reputed institutes of India for pursuing their higher education.

ERDF plans to establish eight more such schools in other rural and interior areas of the state to carry forth the torch of education to those areas too. Thus ERDF aims to provide the preference of streamlined education from the school level to the university level so that the advantage of quality education and assurance of quality higher education is available to the students of this region. The main aim of ERDF is Empowering Education and making the NE region Science and Technology vibrant.

But such an aim is not possible to achieve without your support and help. We welcome your valuable suggestion to make CPS –B, a name to reckon with in the educational scenario of the region.
