We are therefor very happy to announce that, after carefull consideration and a very thorough due diligence, we have decided to establish a first collaboration with the Jagriti Foundation based in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
During our visit to India, a number of meetings took place, schools Jagriti has established were visited and girls’ backgrounds and living conditions were looked at. A lot of information with regard to financial figures, transparency values and principles and ideas for joint program development were exchanged.
We have chosen to support 1 of the 12 schools that are supported and run by Jagriti, the Bailka Sadan School in the centre of Jaipur, an all-girls school:
5 minutes walking distance from Kathputhli slum in the centre of Jaipur
Pupils from this slum are enrolled in this school
School is based in a refurbished orphanage
Set up in 2014
Currently 219 girls enrolled
Pupils receive education, materials, food and clothing for free
Average yearly costs for a girl to go to school: €300 (this includes reoccurring costs such as midday meals and teacher salary as well as cost per capita like creating a coverage for a playground)
We are currently working together on a joint plan which will help the girls in further developing themselves and work togther on giving them a better future.
