The Jeevan School works with children from ‘begging’ or homeless families living in the Holy City of Varanasi, dramatically improving their lives and futures.
It is a loving home for 40 of the worst affected children in the area, and it offers a free education and meals to another 100 children and young adults.
Set up by a mix of Canadian, German and Irish Volunteers, the school was initially set up as a day centre for children from ‘begging’ families. Instead of roaming the streets while their parents worked, they were given a safe place to go and learn.
From there it has grown to become the most respected school and NGO in the whole of Varanasi.
Together we are planning on building a new brand new project so they can reach an help more children – The Jeevan Village.
