THE FABINDIA SCHOOL The school emphasizes a holistic approach to education, offering extensive extracurricular programs and academic courses. The school was established in 1992 in the village of Bali, Rajasthan, by William and John Bissell, who recognized the need for a model school to empower young people in rural Rajasthan, where literacy rates are meagre, especially among women. After completing his studies in 1988, William Bissell lived for several years in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, where he worked with rural artisans and various crafts co-operatives across the state. This formative experience strongly impacted his views on the critical role of education and the lack of high quality, affordable education in rural areas. William was passionate about creative approaches to education which brought out each child's inherent talents and the need to include environmental education in a local context. With input from many creative talents over the years, the school has become a model for preparing its students for success in life while contributing to the local community. Message to the Principal "It was a great pleasure interacting with your team. Your students are brilliant. You are leading a great school. Congratulations. During the show, I wish to focus on some of the very profoundly touching questions."- Dr Ashok Pandey (Director Ahlcon Group of Schools and Host of the My Good School Show).
