Vikas Jhunjhunwala, the founder of Sunshine Schools (click here to visit our website), gave up his US dream and green card to return to India and give back to society.  Having received great education in India and abroad, he knew the impact it has on the life of an individual. He wanted to provide the same opportunities to the poor in his own country.    

In 2015, Vikas, along with a team of professionals and Teach For India alums, started Sunshine Schools with the vision to provide high quality and affordable education to children living in low-income communities in Delhi NCR.

Since its inception, Sunshine School has impacted the lives of many children. We follow a child-centered, activity based pedagogy that has the core belief that "each child is wired and inspired differently" and moves away from the passive, rote-learning based teaching that is still common across most schools.  

We currently have 750 students studying across our 2 primary schools in Delhi NCR.  Students come from blue collar families with an average household income of Rs 10-12,000 per month.  Their parents typically work as carpenters, plumbers, masons, security guards, cooks, maids, and similar professions. The monthly fees charged by the schools is Rs 700 per month on average.

The UP branch currently has 450 students and is running on leased premises. We have completely run out of capacity and are turning away students everyday! Given the huge demand, we expect to grow to 1000 students in the next 5 years.

Therefore, we have purchased a plot of land to build a "permanent home" for our students.  Now we are raising funds to construct the building so that 1000 students from low income families can receive quality education.

The budget for the construction is Rs 2.5 crore (~ USD 300,000). Consequently, we are reaching out for "a helping hand" to help build a "permanent home" and sustain this dream of Sunshine Schools. Of Quality. Affordability. Love.
