The Northern state of Bihar India is one of the poorest areas in all of India. Bodhgaya is located in the state of Bihar and covers an area of 249 square kilometers and contains 139 villages where people have been living in poverty for multiple generations.
The International volunteer organization Bodhi Tree Educational Foundation supports and helps develop multi-faceted educational programs for children and their families in the villages around the region of Bodhgaya and Northern India.
Bodhi Tree Schools offer quality education for both boys and girls in the poverty stricken rural areas of Bodhgaya, they are an essential component to improving the lifestyle of all in the communities. The Bodhi Tree Schools provide classes for both genders in all the basic academic topics, as well as practical life skills and spiritual support. The schools are inclusive; gender, religion and caste make no difference to a child’s welcome. Teachers at the Schools are primarily from the local area, and the goal is that future teachers will be the Bodhi Tree School graduates themselves.
I personally love their philosophy that no matter your background you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
Sports education is the best way to keep kids healthy but the school that I am helping does not yet have a sport court and no money to build one.
I myself grew up in a third world country and recall how much I enjoyed practicing soccer and other sports and the positive impact it has had on my life.
It is my goal to raise AU$14,000.00 but I desperatley need your help. This funding will allow for the construction of a multi-purpose sports court where children can learn and engage in team sports such as basketball, volleyball and futsal. This funding will also cover wages and training for 2 local coaches for the first year of operation.
If we all contribute a small amount it can make a big difference to the lives of many children for years to come.
