Educate for Life action-research sustainable development by running a school in rural India that integrates education, healthcare, and community work.

Educate for Life is a small organisation that aims to transform rural education in India.

Since 2007, we have been running an innovative primary school called Hunar Ghar in a marginalised community in a remote area of rural Rajasthan. We currently have 500 pupils, ranging from four to fourteen. All students that attend the school are first generation learners. We have adapted how the curriculum is taught to meet their needs. They are achieving good academic results with literacy and numeracy skills above the state average. We are documenting our experiences with a view to being a role model for other schools in rural areas.

The school acts as a hub for community related development as we provide seamless support for community members from pregnancy to adulthood through community services focused on maternal and child healthcare and education and mentoring.

We’re a tiny team making a big impact, and you too can be a part of what we do.
