Story



A big percentage of the children in our country work at an age when they should be in school and making childhood memories. Poverty makes these kids grow up too quickly and they have to experience hardships that they shouldn’t at their age. We wish to take one small step in eradicating this and need your help for the same. Please help us give kids the education they need so that they can build a future for themselves.
Kilbil preschool was started nearly 20 years ago where children in the age group of 2-6 years got their basic learning before they were admitted into a formal school. We have grown gradually since our genesis and had around 300 students until 2019. Most of our students come from the economically middle-class and lower-middle-class family background. While many students’ parents couldn’t pay their complete fees we tried our best to never turn them down. The right kind of education and teaching good values at such a young age is very important as it lays the groundwork for the kind of individuals they all will grow up to be.
The recent lockdown due to the prevailing pandemic has put a lot of people out of jobs and even cut down the income of many families. A lot of families of many of our students have been affected similarly. Since a lot of parents haven’t been able to pay the fees of their children, the kids have started working odd jobs with their parents to survive the financial instability. Due to this only around 50 students have taken admission in the 2020 academic year.
On the other hand, the teachers who have been working here have also faced the unfortunate circumstances of this lockdown. With massive salary cuts, it is getting very difficult for them to go on about with their lives and cover their expenses. To increase these existing problems our school infrastructure which is 20 years old is in dire need of repair.
We need your help to keep our school running so that nearly 100 children are not compromised with their education. A huge gap in the number of admissions is because of the family’s inability to pay their fees. Your help will not only help the kids but also keep our school running so that we can continue working with these beautiful souls and helping them create a better life for themselves.
Thank You
