Behind each of these faces is a story of endless struggles. These children belong from the impoverished tea tribes in the villages of Jorhat district, Assam. Primarily occupied in daily waging in the tea gardens, these families barely manage to make their ends meet. Despite the adversities, these children have found their way to happiness through – the joys of learning, of friendship, of looking beyond the tea gardens and dreaming to touch the sky.
With an aim to enhance the overall school experience among the children of Assam’s tea garden communities, Bharti Foundation has partnered with 60 government schools, including 15 in Jorhat under its Satya Bharti Quality Support Program. Involving the community, training of teachers, improving school environment and developing leadership skills in children through co-scholastic activities are some of the program’s key interventions.
