As the COVID-19 crisis continues, the school & hostel remain closed.
The School of Life is moving to online educational support which will enable 70 students from classes 4 to 8 to continue their education. Smartphones with parental controls will be available to students giving them access to teaching videos, online curricular and homework.
Unfortunately, the nursery students won't benefit as the devices aren't able to be sent home to the camp (the slums where the students live).
The school needs your support now more than ever. Make a difference and sign up to the SCOOP Crew. Join our mailing list to stay up to date. Enter your details at the bottom of this page.

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.
