CARE has helped to build the only affordable English medium school in the area, covering approximately 15 villages. This project has been partly sponsored by The Lions Club of Southgate.

Local Partners: Local Village Council, Thamna Health and Education Trust

Prior to CARE’s Involvement: Local English medium schools were too expensive for the locals to attend.

CARE’s Impact: CARE wanted to offer all local children the opportunity to have an education and so built a school that offers affordable education to children living in over 15 surrounding villages.The centre provides free education, meals, full medical check ups, vocational courses and agricultural training.

“The difference that this school will make to the lives of the children from poor backgrounds is unimaginable. It is the first time that most locals will be able to afford to send their childrento be educated.” – Bharat Solanki
