We students dearly miss our school bus drivers and attendants, not only they ferried us to school and back everyday, they kept us from turning the bus upside down :-). Most of all they made sure that we got to school and back home safely and on time.
Covid-19 has caused all schools to be closed for more than a year now. While education has shifted online and schools are getting their fees paid, the School Bus operators have lost their livelihood during this period, as most of the School buses in Mumbai are operated by private owners. Each bus support at least three families - Owner, Driver & Attendant. There are over 7000 such private bus operators in Mumbai region, thus affecting over 21000 families. While we don't know all of them, we have been able to reach out to a few so far.
Please join us in supporting these families with one month of ration expenses. Depending upon the response, we would try to reach more and more such families across Mumbai. The collected funds will be utilized to buy one month ration and other essentials for the affected families.
