A&K Philanthropy supporting young girls in India

August 5, 2017 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy, alongside A&K India, is delighted to announce its support of Hansraj Children’s Home in Udaipur, India. Hansraj is a residential school for about 100 orphaned and underprivileged girls from neighbouring tribal lands. The home provides free education, books, accommodation, meals and clothes for the girls.

In Rajasthan’s rural villages and communities, housing and services are under-developed, incomes are meagre and literacy rates are very low. Families struggle to make ends meet and education is often neglected.

While priority is given to educating young boys, girls are often forced to stay at home either to help with the household chores or to look after younger siblings. The work being done by Hansraj Children’s Home is motivating parents to send their daughters to residential school where education is making a real difference to their lives.

AKP’s current support includes improving facilities at the school, an important focus area as it’s difficult for children to walk the path of development without adequate facilities and resources. A comfortable learning space can have a profound impact on students and teachers.

A&K guests visiting Udaipur have the opportunity to visit the school and connect with the students and teachers, an uplifting experience for all concerned.
