The Trust has been asked to fund the building of a new school in the middle of the small town of Garur in Uttrakhand. Some 150 poor children, aged 3 to 16 years, attend the makeshift school which was formerly a chicken farm. The buildings have no windows or doors so the children are exposed to extreme heat in summer as well as the wet, cold winter weather. The school is non profit making, only charging minimal fees to students those who can afford to pay. The fees are used for staff wages. The school provides free education to 31 students who live below poverty line and 62 under-privileged students receive scholarships funded by the Indian Government. To be completed by August 2018.
