In the past few years, the enrolment rates at the Malighat Community School have increased rapidly.  We now have over 200 students learning at our desks every day, and many more on the wait-list.

In order to educate more students, we are building two more classrooms.  But we need your help!

Many of our students come from poor families and rely on study scholarships.  Literacy rates in Bihar are low, which greatly affects a child’s ability to become an active member of their society.

By building two additional classrooms, we will be able to educate up to 50 more students each year, and employ two new teachers.  This will help us keep our class sizes below 20 students (the average in Bihar is 60 students per class), which helps to ensure a high-quality learning environment.

We are still working hard to bring our Naturopathy Centre to life, and the funds raised last year by individuals at ServiceNow have helped ensure we are more sustainable.  In the meantime, our school continues to gain support and respect in the community, and we’d love your support in bringing the opportunity of education to more deserving children.

All funds raised will go towards the additional classrooms, the school’s ongoing operations and the development of the Naturopathy Centre.
