Jaipur, India

Jaipur is a city in northern India which has some dramatic contrasts. One one hand it has world renowned architecture, but it also has many children who live in poverty.

Children of Hope School is a small school in the slums of Jaipur. It was started by an MBA graduate, Ravi Mohan Pahadiya, who left his career as a sales executive for Reebok Corporation. He went into the streets to help bring the children out of poverty through education.

Assistant Director Gunjan

Our sponsors are all familiar with Gunjan. She can be seen helping with every event, even teaching the children the basics of cooking. You can see her working with the children through our VoTech Program.  Sponsors see her name frequently when she translates and sends messages to them from their sponsored students.

As important as she is, you may be surprised that she only works for the school part-time as a volunteer, since she must earn money for the support of her parents, sister and brother.

Hi, I'm Lali. We are now teaching almost 90 children, ages from 3 to 14. They are divided into multiple classrooms by age group, through the use of partitions that have been paid for by our generous supporters.
