      • Gopa Mukherjee

        I am a freelance media person who is focusing on kids since last many years. Presently I work on kids with autism, make interesting training tools for them which I would like to introduce to the rural kids too as I feel they will take it as fun and learn. I am interested.

      • Bachpan Banao

        Dear Gopa, That sounds exciting. We would love to explore the opportunity. In a place like Dantewada anything done with sincerity and dedication will be of great help. Please drop us a mail @ for further action.

  3. Amit Saxena

    This is really a very good step towards educating the rural kids. I would really like to be the part of this. I am a MBA and with a admin experience of over 5 years. Also my age is 33 and i am living in Delhi. I think these kind of steps should not only restricted to certain areas, as today if you go to any village or small town, there the condition of Govt schools are so pathetic. This step must be followed to them to empower the children with modern education. This is really a great step and i look forward for something like this if happen in near by area of my residence.

    • Bachpan Banao

      Thanks Amit, you can definitely help us. One way is to volunteer for us. It would be a great platform to volunteer and use your skills
