About School Kit

The School Kit program aims at providing underprivileged children from the urban slums and rural areas across Bengaluru & Bengaluru rural receive new & quality education aid at the beginning of every year. We have provided more than 3000+ school kits to children in an effort to encourage them to attend schools and reduce the dropout rates. A school kit contains a school bag with notebooks, fully equipped pencil or geometry boxes. The School Kit program is a totally voluntary run program, which helps socially conscious people to contribute back to society.

Why School Kit?

More than 40 per cent population in our cities and villages live in slums and with limited resources at hand. The scarcity of resources many a times leads to sacrificing education of children over basic needs of life. We at Yuva Bengaluru (known as Yuva Global Foundation) believe that a helping hand from the society will encourage these children in attaining education and arrest the school dropout rates. All of us have experienced the joy of having new school bags, books, pencil, geometry boxes on the very first day of the school. Through this initiative we aim to create the same happiness for the underprivileged children. You can contribute in many ways to support this initiative. Please scroll down to check your options.
