School Updates
We are providing online classes via Zoom.

There are many parents who can’t afford a smartphone.

But they still join the classes through their aunt’s or neighbor’s phone, which truly motivates us to teach team and watch them grow.

Moreover, there are few students who shifted to their village but still have enthusiasm to study as there is no internet connection so they walk all the down to market area with phone and join the class.

But many parents can’t afford to pay fees, so we could pay only half salary.

Thank you for the support in this difficult situation, as there is no other source of income just because of your support we could take care of five boys, me and my daughter.
During the time of pandemic.

    Dear Rachel,

    I admire you for your commitment and your creativity in continueing the lessons at Ganga Valley School.
    You are a lighthouse in these dark times.

    When people in Germany moin about wearing masks I laugh at them together with my mother (aged 93) who experienced Word War II.
    Because we have food, water and everything most of the people in the world do not have.

    Therefore your social action is beyond price!
    Thank you for what you.
