The Foundation's sole supported school in India is Bainada Adarsh Vidya Mandir school, in Abhaneri. The village is located in the Dausa district of Rajasthan State, a rustic, rural area about 60 miles from the state's capital city, Jaipur, along the road to Agra.
OUR IMPACTAt Bainada Adarsh Vidya Mandir School, the Foundation has made infrastucture upgrades, built new toilets, repaired the main school gate and installed ceiling fans. Planned in the future are several new classrooms, which will alleviate having young children sitting in rooms open to the elements and extreme heat for lessons. In addition to these building and infrastructure projects funded by the Foundation, Gate 1 invites tour passengers, who visit our schools as part of their itineraries, to bring small items that are needed but in short supply, to give to the school's students. In this way, Gate 1 Foundation is able to supplement its large-scale contributions with essential educational supplies, which students' families are often unable to afford, thereby multiplying our positive impact on communities.

- Coloring books/crayons

- Child sized socks/hats/gloves
- Child sized raincoats/umbrellas
