  • Need


    The proposed school will be established in Siddharth Nagar in UP, India. Within a 14km radius, there is no school or training centre in this area, which could potentially pave the path for any jobs or route to higher education. The people of this area grow up as uneducated adults and when they move to cities in search of jobs they end up in shanty towns. The condition of the area is untenable and the situation of the girls and women is utterly beyond description.


    The people of this area used to rely on paddy cultivation but since the population increased the land they owned did not produce enough to live on so they have to move to cities and due to illiteracy they ended up in shanty towns. Children as young as 13 years of age of this area have to move to Dharavi to live and work there to earn bread.
    The proposed school will give them an opportunity to be educated so that they can get train for jobs or go into higher education.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To provide Primary and Secondary education to the rural children especially girls of Uttar Pardesh


    » We will establish a school which will train the children to be able to pursue higher education or be able to get trained for jobs.

    What success will look like

    The illiteracy will be eradicated. The girls will have grater opportunities and bigger say in issues concerning them. The exploitation of children in shanty towns will stop.

  • Impact


    The causes of poverty will be eradicated. Women also will be able to stand for themselves and decide for their future.
    At the moment 99% women of this area are house bound, which will reduce. People will be able to contribute to the causes of society positively.


    There is no such risk.


    Donors will be informed regularly. Once the building work starts, we will invite them to take part in laying the foundation of the building if they can. we will send the pictures of the children attending the school.
