Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Henny Penny Library #39 Saraswati Vidya Mandir
Aanganwadi, Village Kathiya
Distt Rishikesh
Uttarakhand

Number of children : 25

This is among the smallest denominator village schools of India - the Aanganwadi model. The goal is to provide basic primary school level education to all. The bigger school may be several kilometers away and the small children find it difficult to negotiate such long distances. The volunteer teacher is given a token stipend salary by the Govt. This is a joint initiative with Snow Leopard Adventures, the leading Adventure Sports company of India. They will be supporting the school from time to time.
