The children come from the adjacent villages. Most of the students are first generation learners and hail from vegetable vendors and local brick kiln worker families.
These students are otherwise very talented and intelligent.
The school is in a dilapidated condition without any toilet facility. They share an unhealthy toilet unit with the adjacent vegetable vendors. Dilapidated building, broken benches and chairs, no furniture, no computer, no library, no basic amenities to sow dream in them to save their smile.
Our Mission :
Our mission is to refurbish the school entirely with help of Global Grant. The entire Project Costs is approximate Rs.70,00,00.00 (USD 95,000). It includes building two stories to accommodate the entire student strength in a same building. Provide furniture, setting up library and computer room. Building separate toilet blocks for boys and girls.
It is a humanitarian project, which will benefit the poor rural children to enjoy their school lives and pursue their carrier. We can provide Adult Education on the weekends and run a small skill development centre for the students and local youth. The proper toilet will reduce the dropout rate of the girl students and would help to pursue their carrier
