Primary School Education. South Asia
This project supports a minority language group in a remote rural area of a country in South Asia. This group suffers from a number of oppressive circumstances. They have occupied the land they live on for many years, but ownership has been taken by majority groups. They do not have reasonable access to education opportunities, clean water or health services. They have no voice in the wider community, and have little hope for the future.
Working through a local, established NGO, the initial phase of this project involves establishing and staffing single-classroom primary schools in three villages, where there is currently no education available. The facilities will be very basic by our standards, but will be the first step in enabling these communities to develop some pride in their culture and heritage, and a chance to develop future leaders.
We hope that later stages will include provision of basic health care and education, digging of wells to provide clean water, and solar electricity.
