#GetOnTheBus. BUT before July 25th

Their uniforms are ready, the books are ready, the kids are ready. All they now need is a school bus. Together we can help them #GetOnTheBus. But Before July 25th.

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.

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 an education in an English medium school that will not only secure their future, but also that of their family and their villages.

How we can help them #GetOnTheBus: 

Time is of the essence. We need to ensure that the money is raised by 25th July. You can contribute in all of the following ways:
  1. Make a contribution towards the campaign to help us get school bus
  2. Start your own support campaign on Milaap to amplify the fundraiser
  3. Share this video and message with #GetOnTheBus on your social media profiles
Note: INR donations will receive 100% tax exemption under section 35 A C. All Donors will receive the tax exemption receipts upon completion of the campaign.

Let’s make these children #GetOnTheBus before July 25!
