Project 2018

 

 

Based on work done during this year and the successes of the last five years Build a School in India (BSI) is significantly expanding its goals.

For 2018 BSI strives to receive sufficient donations to support multiple projects, which will include:

  • Developing facilities, equipment and curriculum to implement a government approved, vocational training program for students at Mata Balak Utkarsha Pratishthan (MBUP) high school in Solapur District, Maharashtra.
  • Building low cost, mobile classrooms from shipping containers for the Quality Education Support Trust to serve children who come from marginalized communities in Palghar District, Maharashtra.
  • Expanding and replacing facilities for young women to continue their education, post-high school, which will include academic requirements, vocational and life-skills training at the Jnana Prabodhini Harali Centre in Osmanabad District, Maharashtra.
  • Remodeling school classrooms and facilities at the Sondara Gurukulam residential school in the remote and underserved region of Marathwada in Beed District, Maharashtra.

Access to high quality, comprehensive and affordable education for students in India is not a routine occurrence. This is especially true in rural communities. BSI has a solid record of success in addressing these issues.
