School: Bagalur Layout

Education, Nutrition, Healthcare - Bangalore

Hennur Road (near Hutchins Road, 6th Cross)


Why



  • An estimated 100 000 people live in Bagalur Layout slum with sub-standard living conditions and very little education.

  • There is little or no awareness of the importance of education, hence the need to make very basic education available.

  • Men work as construction labourers, painters, carpenters, rickshaw drivers, mechanics, plumbers and electricians. Women often work as maids or domestic help.

  • Our school serves as a stepping-stone between survival for daily existence and the formal education system. We facilitate the transition of the child, the family and the community using the tools of love, kindness, gentleness and an empowerment system, which is tailor-made to suit the residents.


School



  • There are 30 students in the school and nursery.

  • Stationery, notebooks and arts-and-crafts material are provided.

  • Field trips, functions and celebrations of festivals are organised.


Facilities and Services



  • The school provides 2 balanced meals daily as nutrition plays a pivotal role.

  • Bi-weekly medical clinics are organised and specialised medical care is provided.


Vision



  • To instil values, hope and the confidence to realise dreams.

  • To create a thirst for knowledge, and nurture self-respect and respect for others.

  • To alleviate poverty through empowerment.

  • To create global citizens through breaking down barriers of nationality, religion, caste and creed and emphasising our shared humanity.
