Real Medicine Foundation - Initiative "School of Excellence for Tribal Children"

Status: Completed


The School of Excellence is located in Alirajpur in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. It is run by Salesians of Don Bosco and the education in this school (6th to 12th grade) will allow its students to enter a college and acquire an Indian State Administration degree, qualifying themselves for a well paid and responsible job.

His Grace, the Bishop of Jhabua, initiated this program in early 2005. It teaches English to sixth grade students who previously studied in Hindi. All students of the School of Excellence belong to one of those tribes known as Bhils. Their families live in small huts in remote villages and most of them earn their livelihood as farmers or daily laborers.
