Educate for Life is a UK registered charity. We work in partnership with local organisation
RBKS. Together, we run Hunar Ghar, an innovative school in rural Rajasthan.
We action-research a model for sustainable development that integrates education,
healthcare, and community work.
Hunar Ghar currently has 258 pupils, ranging from four to fourteen. All students that attend
the school are first generation learners. We have adapted how the curriculum is taught to
meet their needs. They are achieving good academic results with literacy and numeracy skills
above the state average. We are documenting our experiences with a view to being a role
model for other schools in rural areas.
The school acts as a hub for community related development as we aim to provide seamless
support for community members from pregnancy to adulthood through community services
focused on maternal and child healthcare and education and mentoring.
We’re transitioning to work with the government across a wider area. W
