With the financial support of the Gebhard-Müller-Schule in Biberach, our Indian partner organization GRAVIS is currently leading the school center “Kerala Bhakar”. The school is visited by about 60 children. The education is holistic and includes, in addition to regular teaching, extracurricular activities and education on environmental, hygiene and nutritional questions.
The measures are coordinated by a GRAVIS educator and supported by an external team. Through the project the teacher can be paid for, teaching materials can be purchased and activities (such as workshops or health checks) financed. Through the project, these children receive the opportunity to attend the school, which would otherwise not be possible for them.
