Tapovan India schools are non formal, primary level schools that are generally run right there in the community, from where the children belong. The infrastructure consists of shades of mat and khar (a kind of dried grass) resting on bamboos, or small huts, called ‘Jhuggi’. They are maintained ‘clean and green’ by the children themselves with the help of their teachers. The schools run for 4 hours daily Mon-Sat at any convenient shift (morning or evening) as per the requirement of the community (like working children can come only in the evening shift).Currently the number of children in the school is around 70.
Asha Munich supported one year expense of one of school of Tapovan which they started in Feb 2004 after commitment from Asha Munich members in Jan 2004.

These schools will facilitate the development and growth of a child’s mental, physical, emotional and spiritual faculties by imparting quality education and to help them realize their talents and potentials so that they lead a happy and meaningful life.
