With the current COVID-19 crisis, the school & hostel have temporarily closed. The teachers and students are currently in lockdown, as with the entire Indian population. We are communicating regularly with the teachers, and will provide updates via Facebook, and newsletters.
The school needs your support now more than ever. Make a difference and sign up to the SCOOP Crew.

SCOOP is an Australian charity with a global heart. We are the little sister to The SCOOP Foundation in Dublin, Ireland. SCOOP Australia inspires connections between Australians and marginalised children in the global community.
Since establishing in 2014 SCOOP has contributed over $40,000 for marginalised children living in poverty around the world. SCOOP is governed by a diverse, passionate and highly skilled Board and is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission.
Since it's founding, The School of Life has grown to provide free education for the most vulnerable children in Varanasi, India. The school also comprises a hostel providing free boarding for 30 students, allowing them a safe place to call home and concentrate on their education.
SCOOP Australia has been supporting The School of Life since 2014.
