It runs 11 student and entrepreneur villages in these regions that house 600 students and provides incentives such as scholarships and subsidized housing to encourage students to settle in these areas. In return for discounted housing, students volunteer 500 hours per year, working with underprivileged 20,000 children, providing academic support/activities, renovating schools, and building gardens.
