The Bus Arrives!

This is a week of celebration.
Tuesday morning was the first time for a bus ride to school for the children in Kakinada, India.

“The happiness of the children is so much that I cannot explain it in words. Today is the day of miracle for the school children because of this new gift of the bus,” said Paparao Yeluchuri- Children’s Hope India partner.

As you know, these students are from the slums and impoverished fishing villages along the Bay of Bengal in eastern India. Without the free schools Paparao runs for the Kakinada area poor, these children would be wandering the streets or working as child laborers. Today, the effort to get the children to school was made easier by this brand new school bus you helped purchase. The long walk from the villages to school will no longer be an issue during the torrential rains of the monsoon season.
