In 2003 they were 8 classes and 140 children (without any sexual, religious or castes distinction)

Katholi School has now 1000 pupils between the ages of 3 to 18 years; they are divided into 15 classes (nursery to class 12) each having their own teacher.

Our partner Jasveer Singh as found some second-hand computers for the school, which is a very good point for the children, in a country where data processing is into full expansion. One of our teachers follows itself some courses in Kishangarh and is given the responsability to initiate the pupils.

It is from this axiom that the work continues today in many forms, and it is the main purpose and objectives of the association to maintain the infrastructure of this commitment to improve the education of as many adults and children as possible in Katholi. This will in turn increase the possibility of self reliability and growth within the village of Katholi.

One such project is to encourage the women of the village to be self sufficient through a co-operative group, this will involve the operation of group funding to support traditional domestic industry such as weaving and embroidery. It is envisaged that a micro-credit scheme could be very beneficial, and we are currently in the process of creating such a scheme.
