We work in partnership with local organisations to ensure integrated provision of education, healthcare and community development services in Bakhel, an extremely deprived and remote rural community in Rajasthan in India.
Since 2007, we have supported an innovative primary school in India called Hunar Ghar in a marginalised community in a remote area of rural Rajasthan. The school has over 400 children between four and fourteen enrolled each year. Most students are the first in their families to attend school. We have adapted how the curriculum is taught to meet their needs. They are achieving good academic results and for the past three years, final year students have gone on to secondary education.
The school acts as a hub for community related development as we aim to provide seamless support for community members from pregnancy to adulthood.
