Hope is for Everyone

WE BELIEVE every child has a right to education, regardless of their last name or appearance.

Educating the Santal Children

The Santals are the largest modern day tribe in India at over 10 million strong. Yet their educational opportunities have been almost nonexistent due to caste system prejudice. Until now. Tribe Rising India was founded to build schools, provide scholarships and create generational change for the Santal people.

TRIBE RISING 2022 GALA

Tribe Rising India Capital Campaign- Gurap

Tribe Rising India’s capital campaign will provide life-changing education for thousands of Santal children today and for generations to follow! Your contribution today will help:

Build the first high school uniquely dedicated to Santal students. This modern facility will give 1,200 students the education they need to compete in the mainstream economy. The high school is already 75% funded! (as of 03/22)

Construct a new residence to lodge additional teachers, counselors and visitors/volunteers.

Complete roads, fill labs, expand the kitchen and furnish a fully-equipped school

Thanks to our generous donors, Tribe Rising India has already completed the first girls’ dormitory, ensuring girls over age 10 can continue receiving a safe, quality education.

We have also provided additional staff, new teachers and a school counselor!

And we are just getting started! A second school, an English-medium, K-12 school in the developing city of Bankura is on the horizon.
