School Chale Hum !


He who opens a school door, closes a prison. - Victor Hugo

Children enjoying their walk to school. 
Still many of them have to walk miles to reach the nearest school. State transport bus either don't run on time or don't run at all ! However, the walk serves children to have fun and more importantly to create a bond and memories of lifetime !




School is practice for the future !
This is Sunil, a 14 year boy from a village near Ratnagiri. He and his friends travel back to his home from school by state transport bus. Usually bus does not arrive. So either these little fellows have to walk back or wait for some biker for a lift. Sunil comes from a poor family of four, parents and two brothers. Older brother and father goes to Mumbai for few months for painting job and returns home during Monsoon time to work in paddy field. Sunil after returning home cannot go to play, he has to assist his mother in household work. He too is willing to leave school, to earn more money.




A good school teaches you resilience !

Running a nationwide campaign has certainly increased the number of schools. What about accessibility, infrastructure, and quality ?
However, much better than to have nothing !
