Over 1,000 girls in the age group of 5-11 are envisioning a better future through Amitasha wherein their education, nutrition, health and personality development are taken care of. Starting from Nursery, these girls remain with Amitasha till class VII. Students who display extraordinary potential and interest are encouraged to study further at the other Amity institutions. At Amitasha, apart from academics, the girls are also given vocational training so that, tomorrow they have the ability to become economically independent.
