Rajasthan, Bal Kalyan Samiti Boarding School.
The boarding school hosts tribal girls and boys from the entire area. In addition to receiving food at school the students are provided with living accomodation.
In addition to the regular subject classes the school offers several additional learning activities that enable the students to learn a job for their future occupation. For example for the females there are sowing classes that enable the girls to learn tailoring skills. The skills learned are immediately put into practice, in fact the uniforms for all the students are created in the school.
