Corporate Social Responsibility

Project Awake & Shine seeks partnership with corporate organizations to support our rural schooling project, as part of CSR initiatives

The Awake & Shine Primary School was set up by at Samthar, by Lt General (Retd) “jimmy” Singh, from his own resources. It is a working model of a rural school of the future. It demonstrates what can be achieved, with frugal spending and innovative ideas.

The school is operated with the support of over a hundred sponsors, from all parts of the world. They came to us as tourist and are now “friends of Awake & Shine”...  Read more

In the next stage of development we need funds to undertake the following :-

  • Develop the Awake & Shine School, Samthar, as a resource centre for quality rural education . This will involve setting up  a wing for research  in teaching methodology, and for training of rural teachers
  • Develop a Vocational Centre for Rural Tourism, to empower local people as Inn Keepers, and to train them as cooks, housekeepers, and guides
  • Create a scholarship fund to support the post - primary education of deserving children at English medium Schools at Kalimpong and surroundings.
  • Progressively  replicate the Awake & Shine School model, to establish more such schools to bring quality education at the foundation level to remote regions.

Our primary focus is on rural education at the foundation level. However we also want to Improve the quality of life through village tourism, solar lighting, solar heating, solar cooking, rain water harvesting, basic health care, and clean toilets.

We have a record of achieving results on a shoe string budget. We operate with absolute integrity, and transparency. If you are desirous of redeeming the cobwebbed rural education system, join us in a crusade to usher in fresh ideas and support us to shape rural children into change makers of the future

Come and visit us,  meet our happy children and see how the fresh mountain air, is blowing away the cobwebs of the past, and laying the foundations for a refreshing form of rural education at the Awake & Shine School.  Exchange ideas, criticise us to improve – and if you are convinced; support us.
