Educate for Life
Educate for Life works with local partners in India to provide integrated education, healthcare and community development services to the Bakhel community.
The community is amongst one of the poorest and most marginalised in India. Families survive by subsistence farming, with 98% living below the poverty line.
Over 80% of adults in the community have not been to school themselves. in 2007, we built a school at the request of the community. Today, Hunar Ghar School is attended by over 400 children aged between four and fourteen. The children learn inside and outside their classrooms, enjoying extra-curricular activities and opportunities to develop life skills as well as academic ones. All students receive regular health checks and two nutritious meals a day, breakfast and lunch. For the past three years, most students have gone on to secondary education after completing their studies at Hunar Ghar - a fantastic achievement.
The school also acts as a hub for community development services. We have healthcare programmes to provide support for community members from pregnancy to adulthood.
With your help, change is possible in Bakhel.
