Along with the provision of schooling infrastructure the project aims at creating an ecosystem of women entrepreneurs with each centre as a hub allowing them to perform livelihood-generating activities within their settlement. Given below the the funding amount required for 6 schools.

As the project also aims at educating the upper-caste communities against oppression, we are looking forward to having team members that have knowledge in sensitization for caste-based discrimination.
We also look forward to collaborating with individuals that could guide us through networking for raising funds. We also aim at identifying and reaching out to other districts and constructing such schools. For the same, we intend to collaborate with local NGOs for the on-ground implementation of the projects.
We look forward to collaborating with volunteers who have some experience in hands-on building methods. The volunteers will get an opportunity to engage with the community closely and understand the issues at the grass-roots level. The collaboration between volunteers and on-ground artisans will allow for interesting dialogues to emerge and newer ways of constructing better spaces for children.
