We’re a UK-registered charity asking the question, ‘How can villagers in India enjoy a high quality education which is relevant to their lives and needs?’
We explore this question through research and action at their innovative school ‘Hunar Ghar’, which has been closely working with a Rajasthani tribal community since 2006.
Hunar Ghar provides quality education and a nurturing environment for free to 194 children. There is a twice monthly health clinic, personal one-on-one support to every pregnant woman in the village, and many other activities. Next year will see Hunar Ghar partnering with 5 local government schools to provide quality education to neighbouring communities as well.
Hunar Ghar is an experimental space where partnership with the community and child consultation help to create a loving and vibrant space that is re-thinking what a village school should look like. Interested? Read on then get involved or become an enabler.
