Challenge

Almost 70 million children across the world are prevented from going to school each day. In communities where poverty and illiteracy is high, education is seldom available or highly ranked. In rural India where life can be harsh we discovered an 8yr old boy living with the cattle, sick from HIV and enduring a close to feral existence; a 5yr old girl willfully maimed, sold into forced labour, gang raped repeatedly. Neither children knew what school even was and both are now flourishing there.

Solution

A good school environment can enable our children the chance of laughter, playfulness and companionship. All children need to explore and learn in a safe environment to develop. We have worked with The British Council to develop international links for our pupils and teachers through the 'Connecting Classrooms Scheme' with great results. We believe an education is vital for our children and we supplement our government approved syllabus with our own counselling and personal development study.

Long-Term Impact

School lays the foundation of a child's development to becoming a responsible citizen and good human being. A place where young talent and low self esteem alike, can be recognized and nurtured better. Education not only provides us with knowledge about the world, it gears us to soar high in life in pursuit of our dreams. It paves the way for a good career and builds character. Our project will provide school education to 300 children each year and work to break the crippling cycles of poverty.
