So I’m Bas (@basdg_) coming December I’ll be part of a student exchange program with kids from Mumbai, India. In which we’ll teach children in the Mumbai slums to brighten their future, and to do that I’ll need your help!
So from the 12th of the December till the 20th I will be exploring a total different culture at the other side of our beloved globe. And which I will be teaching poor kids the geography of our world as we know it together with my buddies Jens (@lifebyjens) and Guus @iannii_photography) and to do so we need money to buy globes, school supplies and more to help these kids and teachers to a better and brighter future.
My school is working together with REAP:
Think of children in dark, dingy factories. Think of children in rag-picking. Think of children in faraway rural areas. Theirs is a life of struggle, of hopelessness, of salvaging garbage to eke out a living, of ill equipped schools. Their world is surrounded with darkness, darkness of illiteracy. Dreams there never were. Their world is the slum or the village. It begins and ends there.
The better place is school. Unfortunately, this is still is a distant dream. Yet, we know, the future of the country is shaped in her classrooms...
REAP opens up for them a new world through education, a world beyond their slum or village, a chance to dream again. Through a unique programme that literally takes education to their doorstep, it is transforming lives. It starts with a child and ends with the elders, especially women, bringing in its loop an empowerment of peoples.
Thank you for visiting us. Your support will bring more smiles on the faces of children. Thank you for your time.
