School Expansion in Rural India

by Global Hope Network International UK
School Expansion in Rural India

Summary

Global Hope Network plans to construct 2 additional classrooms at a school in the village of Dhoker Jhara, India. Education is critical for these students and their families to end their extreme poverty. The school opened in 2015 with 30 students, and now has 150 students. It is crowded and cannot accept more students until more classrooms are built. In addition to other subjects, children who attend this school are studying both Hindi and English, which is a rare opportunity in rural India.

Challenge

Dhoker Jhara is a cluster of five small villages that are sharing one primary school. There are many more students who wish to attend this school, but cannot because there is no space for them. The school does not even have enough desks and benches to comfortably seat all of the students who attend. Because education is key to ending extreme poverty, the children who are waiting to attend school do not have hope for a solution to their poverty.

Solution

Two additional classrooms will allow at least 50 more students to attend the school.

Long-Term Impact

By attending school and receiving help with tuition and supply costs, children of families living in poverty will have hope for their futures and be able to follow their dreams of meaningful jobs and impact on society. This will transform the Dhoker Jhara cluster of villages to systemically improve their overall living situations.
