Summary

This project will help children who cannot go to school because of poverty to study and get a job out of caste system in India. "MOTHER BABY SCHOOL" branches are largely set up in villages where the population is poor and each household struggles to support itself from day to day. It is precisely the education that their children would receive that would help bring them out of poverty. Through education, we are giving them an opportunity to move beyond their caste.

Challenge

"MOTHER BABY SCHOOL" is in villages where each household struggles to support itself from day to day, and is unable to afford to send their children to school, yet it is precisely the education that their children receive and that helps bring them out of poverty. The caste was abolished under India's constitution, but is still deeply rooted in the minds of its people and only few children can get a job they want, while others cannot help succeeding to their families' job based on caste.

Solution

This project will support children who cannot go to school because of their families' economic conditions. The caste system was abolished under India's constitution, but is still deeply rooted in the minds of its people. In oder to get a job children truly want to do, some students need to go to college, other students need get a certificate. Through education, we are giving them an opportunity to move beyond their caste.

Long-Term Impact

We want to make a model where children achieve their dream out of the caste in the country. In 2013, we applied for a license from the Indian government that will enable us to issue graduation certificates, which will allow the children to apply for junior high school, and which means we can expand our operation: expand school from now 40 students to 100 in the next year. We hope that this project encourages not only Indian people but others who are uneducated all over the world.
