Shanti Bhavan Children’s Project

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


The Shanti Bhavan summer school offers poor, uneducated children from the untouchable caste in India a chance to go to school at the age of four until the end of high school. Each child has the potential to escape poverty. One child per an impoverished family is given the possibility of a brighter future with greater education. The school has many volunteers who teach classes, activities, and mentor students. This is a nonprofit program and all the people who volunteer want to help, show love, and make a difference in a child’s life. Children are given the opportunity for increased social mobility and the ability to eventually end up in the middle class and be eligible for higher ranking jobs.

Female students face challenges during high school years. Frequently, many  wealthier classmates wear high-end clothing, while impoverished students wear more cheaply made clothing and have Dr. George pay for their education. Rather than choosing a field to study, Dr. George wants the females to study what he believes will get them high paying jobs to support families. Upon entering the workforce, Dr. George requires each female to donate a portion of their salary back to the school. Each student receives the opportunity to learn and achieve greater success.
