    This fundraiser will benefit


    from Dhanbad, Jharkhand

More than eight million children under 6 live in approximately 49,000 slums across India and becoming increasingly vulnerable to a variety of risks.

A few years ago, Dev Kumar Verma and his wife Priyanka Verma decided to do something concrete to address the issue at their own capacity. Spending part of their own salary for several years, they have successfully brought back to school more than 500 kids in the coal mining belt of Jharkhand, who often otherwise lose their childhood engaged in illegal coal thefts.

Verma runs three completely free primary schools - Pathshala and successfully transformed the lives of these countless kids.

THIER NEXT STEP? Not only Pathshala has growing needs to transform even more lives, kids grow up- and that also means the need for a high school! So, efforts are already underway to expand the cause to include a high school as well.

We will be delighted to see you a part of this effort. The donation here, including, foreign currency donations, go directly to the Pathshala account. If you would prefer a direct transfer as INR payments, you can also contribute through the main campaign page or using the details below.
