Going to School in Bihar

Harshita Kumari

Year 2 of Be! Schools is just about to begin. We've trained 2,000 teachers across 1,000 schools to use the dynamic entrepreneurial skills stories with children. As I write this, 5,000 sets of 21 books are on their way to Bihar. The monsoon is still washing away roads, which makes delivery to schools in deep rural India very hard work. When trucks can't go all the way, our team jumps out and walks carrying the heavy books to ensure they'll reach children in school. We're excited about Year 2. We have nine new skills stories: Goal Goa (ethics & teamwork), Majid Makes Jam (Be resourceful), Madhur's Book of Memories (Documenting information), Asha makes a budget (making a budget), Risky Business (take a risk!), The Magician's Secret (Tolerance for Ambiguity), Short Circuit (Financial Literacy), Who will you choose? (how to crack a job interview) & It's not scary it's just paper (register your business). And we've made changes to our last year's content that's really popular with children, My Family Tree & Bijali Brings the Carnival to her village, to ensure the stories reflect what children have told us. We've also created five new board games including one to make a business plan!

It's time to go to school in Bihar, India again.

Thank you for your gift to send beautiful design-driven skills stories to children in school.

We're sharing with you postcards from children in Bihar.
