How you can help

Our free schools project was eststablished twelve years ago in very small quarters. Today, we are educating 325 children in our large primary school premises, 90 in remote satellite schools, dozens in senior tutoring classes, and providing a scholarship fund enabling students to go to high school and university.

How important is this project?

It responds to: Our state (Bihar) having the lowest literacy rate in India (47%)
Target population:
Significantly disadvantaged families up to 35km from Bakrour.
Expected number of beneficiaries:
325 children, and 50 teenagers and young adults every year
50% of NPWT funds

Increasing literacy has a number of important impacts:

  • Literacy is statistically linked to reduced levels of poverty
  • Educated girls are considered less affected by the endemic dowry system
  • Educated mothers are statistically shown to have smaller families, healthier babies and are likely to suffer less human rights abuses

Key results delivered so far:

  • Quality education delivered to 1500 children over the past 12 years
  • Parent/guardians have come to understand the importance of their child attending school
  • 350 students have graduated high school with the help of our senior tutoring
  • 200 students have gone on to university (learn about our scholarships program)
