Summary

To provide quality education to the children of the musahar (rat-eaters) the most deprived and exploited community in India. The project runs a fully free English medium residential school for them. The school has a highly qualified faculty and necessary facilities to provide real quality education to the most deprived. The school gives these children a level playing field to compete with the best.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The musahars are landless laborers caught in a vicious cycle of poverty. Quality education can empower and bring change. Government's affirmative action has failed to reach this rural community at the lowest rung of the socio economic ladder. Empowered by education musahars can make a quantum jump in life, become role models and catalyst of change in the community what has not happened in more than 2000 years can be achieved. Mission is to bring about a 'Silent Revolution'.

How will this project solve this problem?

The school provides boarding, lodging, clothes, toiletries, books, healthcare etc. The school has recruited well paid talented faculty for major subjects like English, Maths, Science, computers etc. Empowerment through quality education is the key.

Potential Long Term Impact

Musahars students graduating from the school will make a quantum jump in life and be catalyst of change in their community, what has not changed in over 2000 years can change in a few decades. 50 new students joined the school in January 2010
