With more than 7,40,000 schools India operates the biggest education system in the world. In India today, 4% of our children never start school. 58% don’t complete primary schools. And 90% don’t complete school & about only 10% of our children go on to college both saddens and angers us.
There are many organisations and NGOs are in existence in India which have a common goals mainly, a better education, eradicate poverty, food for all, childcare, better quality living standard and many more. We have found one of the novel organisation ‘Bighelp’ which aims for basic and formal education to all children in India.

By mobilizing the funds Bighelp is helping underprivileged children in India to step in the march towards change, self-reliance by providing basic and formal education, thereby raise economic productivity of the country, improve the educational prospects of the next generation, promote sound management of environmental resources and reduce poverty.
Bighelp is founded by Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) living in USA to help the children in their motherland. Bighelp works directly with the children and collaboratively work with other volunteers who are on the same mission working with underprivileged children. Bighelp raises funds and use them to implement literacy projects in India through NGO and other volunteer organizations in India. Bighelp For Education in USA is associated with “Bighelp For Education Trust” in India as one of the donor to implement the literacy projects in India.
The objective of Adopt A School program is to strengthen Government schools that are providing formal education in rural areas in India. These schools provide full time schooling for children with the syllabus prescribed by the government. The formal schools being supported by Bighelp are the schools that have been neglected by local communities and government officials.
The children attending these schools pay little or no fees and come from low socio-economic backgrounds. The goal of this program is to increase the student enrollment & retention rate, incorporate good teaching and learning techniques in government schools and ensure that the education that the children receive is effective.
