Vijayawada, Krishna District, AP
Bighelp has provided school bags, note books, pens, pencils and erasers to 180 students from 6 government public schools in and around Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh.

All of the 180 students are from poor socio and economic background and below poverty level. Some of the children are orphans and some are with parents of who cannot afford to buy any educational material for their children due to their poverty. Bighelp collaborated with a local non-profit organization at Vijayawada, Arise & Shine, that helped in screening hundreds of families and shortlisted the children who were struggling with poverty and those who could not meet their basic educational needs. Bighelp team from Vijayawada project has surveyed the villages and schools, talked to the children and teachers and completed the final selection of 180 deserving students based on their poverty level, interest in continuing their education and their academic performance. All of 180 students were presented with education materials including a school bag and note books. These materials are very useful in a way that they motivate children to attend school and improve the quality of their education.

Bighelp believes that the poverty alleviation can be done through providing good educational opportunities to the next generation. Eradication of poverty in India is a long-term goal of Bighelp and it continues to work hard to break the cycle of poverty by providing the better education opportunities and mentoring children towards reaching their goal.
