In 1997 the trust shifted its focus to India, funding the refurbishment of a high school, and establishing educational facilities at Sanghol, near Chandigarh, Punjab. This has expanded steadily until it is now a 25-acre campus with several institutions offering education and training from nursery level to postgraduate studies.

In the absence of this initiative in a rural district of Punjab, the poor children living here were deprived of university education which is only available in big cities. The trust funded a major building refurbishment and extension of a high school at village Hebowal (Punjab) in 1997-99, creating better facilities for students and teachers. As a result the school was upgraded to a higher secondary school.
