Barwatoli School Bus Project
About this Cause
Barwatoli, Jharkhand is a very poor and backward tribal area where studies are not given much importance. Locals encourage their children to work for daily wages to shoulder their household expenses. Care for Children volunteers regularly visit around 17 villages (around 15 kms) to encourage and bring over 250 students to school and educate them. With the addition of two school buses, Care for Children will be able to cover 24 villages within a circumference of 25 kms. Our expectation is that school enrollment will quickly jump from 250 to over 500 students with the addition of transportation facilities. This fundraiser will cover the expenses for one school bus.
