Let's secure
present and future of
Bodhgaya children!

The recent years have been amazing for our school! Thanks to your generosity we have been able to raise funds for the land, construction and furnishing of the new school building. You can find the list of our wonderful donors at the bottom of this page. Now we would like to ask you to help us with our new project  which will substantially contribute in our mission to help the most underprivileged kids in Bodhgaya.


Dear supporters of Shanti India School!

Everything that has been possible has been thanks to your extraordinary generosity, which today allows 720 children belonging to the most disadvantaged families in Bodhgaya to benefit from a quality education to which they would never have had access without you!

However, our project has a weakness, it currently only depends on benefactors, which makes its present and future unstable.  

Consolidating its foundations is essential, and the solution to do this presented itself! Indeed, over the years our school has gained a reputation for excellence which has led hundreds of parents to ask us to enroll their children there.

The numerous registration requests that we receive come as always from the most disadvantaged families, but also from more and more wealthy families who offer to pay for their child’s education.

This is how the project was naturally born to build a fee-paying school whose profits will be entirely donated to support the non-paying school.

This project is taking shape this year. We found suitable plot, at a reasonable price considering the real estate speculation that has been rampant in Bodhgaya for several years.

Generous benefactors have already allowed us to raise half the amount of this plot, and its acquisition would have been possible if we had benefited from the same subsidies as last year. But the difficult and unpredictable times we are going through have not allowed some of our most generous sponsors to renew their aid, precisely when it is most needed.

So that the miracle that we have achieved together continues to bring happiness to the children of Bodhgaya and the generations that will follow, on their behalf we address this appeal to you, help us to ensure its foundations and perpetuate it!

Every little donation counts!

The cost of the plot of 569 m² together with the registration fees is  €116,700. The construction costs we estimate for €380,500, so the total amount required to have the new school is €497,200.

It is with all our faith in your generosity that we address this request to you on behalf of all the children who will benefit from it.

Dear Shanti India godmothers and godfathers, today the children of Bodhgaya need each and all of us more than ever to allow this project to be finished!
