Adopt a school
Desi Hangover is creating an ecosystem fulfilling needs of the artisans and securing their future generation sustainably.
Desi Hangover has taken up the cause of academic revolution in rural India. Our performance is analyzed not by the number of soles we sell, but by the number of souls we influence. In a country like India, where about 70% of the population is concentrated in rural areas, a change must be brought about first, in the Indian villages. Undertaking the ‘Adopt a school’ campaign, DH is initiating this change in a place where it is most needed.
Our artisans reside with their families near our workshop and along with them resides a will to learn, a will for education. However, initially, the only facilities the teachers there were able to provide were a temple which they called school and an old, isolated blackboard. The cold, uninviting floor drove half the children away and the few that stayed back were the ones desperately praying for a change. A change, that came with the ‘Adopt a school’ campaign. DH directs its profits, towards the development of education in this village. Adopting this school, we hope to transform the fate of its students.
Providing facilities like water and electricity, we have created an appropriate academic environment for the students. From protecting them from the chills of the floor to providing them with the necessary resources to study, we have covered the primary infrastructural needs of the school. Today, the students learn using digital technology, they are getting a school that beacons them for learning and playing. One smile started a chain of smiles and one change is touching hundreds of lives.
