New Bus for the Street Schools

14streetschoolbus_1140x450

The Mobile Street Schools at GNCEM are run for children who live out on the crowded streets of Kolkata’s city centre. Many of these children are orphans. Every morning, the volunteer teachers drive round the streets of Kolkata in a big yellow school bus and pick up the children.

As you can imagine, this school bus goes through a lot of wear and tear. GNCEM told us that they needed a new bus for the mobile schools and we wanted to help.

We are so pleased to have raised £15,000 which is enough money to buy GNCEM a brand new shiny school bus! This includes the money raised recently through our epic virtual ‘Cycle to Kolkata‘ fundraiser.

We are looking forward to seeing some pictures of the new bus very soon and we will share these with you as soon as we have them.
