In 2007 Milaan laid the foundation of the Milaan School in a remote, rural village called Kaintain in Sitapur District, Uttar Pradesh. The centre is a creation of the collaborative efforts of the local community and Milaan.
Founding members of Milaan started a learning center in Kaintain village, Sidhauli, Sitapur with a dream to provide quality education to children from low socio-economic communities. In the same year, the enrollment grew from 10 students to 48 students!
