Happy School Program aims to provide/upgrade the infrastructural and co-scholastic facilities in state funded schools, to make them secure, attractive and happy learning places for students and teachers.

Further, 55.7% Government Schools have useable girls' toilets. 75.6% Government schools have drinking water facilities.
