I / 21 - B.D. Singh School

Gobraha, Chetganj

With over 1,200 students, the B. D. Singh Public School is one of the largest schools that we support. It was established in 2006 by our long-standing member Mr. Ram Dhani Singh. The B. D. Singh Public School covers a catchment area of 20 villages with a population of approx. 40,000 people and is located near the city of Mirzapur along the Ganges River. 

C & F has been supporting the school since it opened in 2006 and pays the tuition for 350 children who otherwise would not be able to attend school. The furniture store Möbel Rieger (Göppingen / Germany) increased its level of commitment to C & F and has been sponsoring another 500 children since 2011. 

The Board of Education for the state of Uttar Pradesh (U.P. Madhyamic Siksha Parishad, Allahabad) has officially recognised the School.
