Strangely Unique Schools
Train Platform Schools
India is home to nearly half a billion children, many of whom live in extreme poverty and unfortunately, many of them dont have access to an education. A schoolteacher, Inderjit Khurana, who took the train on a daily basis to work, knew these children couldnt afford school and without education they would not be able to elevate themselves out of poverty. So she decided to take the school to these children and thus was born the train platform school, with the formation of the Ruchika Social Service Organization in 1985. Inderjit passed away on October 26, 2010, but the organization she left as her legacy continues to work toward educating children through these schools.
