The Schools & Skills Foundation is bringing hope and health to one of the poorest parts of rural India. 

Bihar is one of the very poorest Indian states. It is feudal. It has a high level of illiteracy. Of all its desperately poor districts Bodhgaya, where Buddha attained enlightenment under the Bohhi tree, is amongst the poorest. 

Bodhgaya is the focus of the activities of 
The Schools and Skills Foundation – India. 

Our dedicated and experienced local team is leading a range of very down to earth, practical initiatives that are bringing real hope and health and happiness to some desperately needy children and young women.
