Prahar Military School

Prahar organization began with residential camps to spread soldierly qualities in the society. The camps led children to have a thorough disciplined lifestyle habits. This prompted the parents to have their children associated with Prahar for a longer duration of time. Hence, the idea of 12-hour non-residential school took birth.
