THE INDIA SCHOOL PROJECT IN BRIEF
The India School Project is a non-denominational and politically neutral charitable association headquartered in Switzerland. As it is self-funded and reliant on donations, the association members work on a voluntary basis.
Sustainable and effective aid
We believe that the place of birth of a child must not dictate its future and therefore we collectively invest in the future of disadvantaged village children in underdeveloped areas.
Lasting, sustainable and effective.
The understanding that education is the foundation for the path out of poverty determines the objective of our charitable association:
To provide rural families affected by poverty with the opportunity of a solid school education and to simultaneously raise awareness of the importance of education.
We see the key to long-term and sustainable support in educational work and in helping people to help themselves.
Our aid is clearly aimed at improving the living conditions of the people affected and at supporting them in their walk towards independence.
With our school concept, we hope to set an example and also gain the trust of the village residents and the local government. This will eventually allow the school to be adopted by the state and to be independently managed by the responsible village residents.
