School to School - Connect Urban & Rural Children
by GOONJ
 
As per the Annual Survey of Education Report (ASER) survey, India has made impressive progress in school enrollments and the focus is to improve quality. Goonj has found that rural students lack basic supplies (uniforms, pencil, books, a bag etc) while urban students have the same in abundance. This recycling, environment-friendly effort sensitizes and motivates urban students to donate their reusable school material, and acts as the carrot to get village children to school. project reportread updates from the field
