TejasAsia is a not for profit organisation based in New Delhi, India with a heart set on eradicating poverty. Here's a link to its website where you can read about its numerous projects and the lives and communities it has changed. http://www.tejasasia.org/.
Mobile School Bus Project: This is one of TejasAsia's many projects. A 50 seater bus is purchased and fitted with air conditioners, TVs, computers, fans, lights and foldable tables. It is transformed into a mobile school bus that brings education, food and a whole lot of heart to two communities every day - that's 100 children receiving an education, nutrition and a chance every day!
A team consisting of two teachers, one assitant, one bus driver & one helper will assist everyday. And guess what. We will be helping TejasAsia purchase its FOURTH BUS!!!
