One school bus can help children from 10 villages to reach school:
Bhelu and such other villages are just 10 kms away from SREC English Medium School. However, Anu, Vinu, Tanu and other children of these villages are deprived of education due to the absence of a school bus.
Despite the parent’s ambition of sending their children to an English medium school, the distance of 10 kilometres is a big deterrent as it is physically taxing for the little souls. The parents hence have no choice, but to compromise on their education and future.
We spoke to the parents and they shared that they would be more than willing to send their children to SREC if transportation is provided.
By government regulations, the last date of admitting these children is 1st August, 2016. Hence it is of utmost importance that we raise the money i.e 18.5 Lacs INR by 25th July, 2016. 1 bus will enable children of 10 villages (around 120 children) to get English Education that will not only secure their future, but also of their family and eventually that of the country.

SREC began with teaching sessions for a handful children in a temporary shed under a tree. Today over 700 children are educated at the Centre, till the 7thStandard. SREC takes care of all educational expenses of students including uniforms, books, educational kits, meals as well as transportation.
Success of the school has spread the word and now more adivasi and poor families are looking for high quality of education for their children’s bright future. To meet the increased demand, a new school building is being constructed that will accommodate about 1,000 children.
