Project Description and Impact

Our organization works across communities of children in destitute conditions to provide formal and non-formal education through several educational outlets in Bodhgaya Region of northern India. Our Bodhi Tree School in Shripur Village imparts formal schooling to over 500 students in both genders. Bodhi Tree school is practically the only accessible option for education for these children and their parents, most of whom are agricultural laborers. Our organization has educated several hundred students in the past seven years and also sponsors their studies in University. It has energized these communities to recognize the importance and significance of education in social mobility, and we want to continue expanding opportunities for them. We've worked hard to achieve many milestones like curbing the practice of forced marriages for girls, changing social norms about girls getting an education, bringing absenteeism to almost Zero, reducing the drop-out rate for girls to historically low levels and raising awareness about education in secluded communities in back drops. The school also provides health care for its students and  nutritional Mid Day meals. We have been working sine 2009 onward and our students passed seondary exams with distinctions in multiple subjects. We are looking for an experteer to train us in the tools we need to make this project more visible.

We as an organization would offer all assistance that may help foster a productive experteer stay so that we can both get maximum dividends as a result of the collaboration.
