"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

NBJK runs several non-formal education centers and vocational training courses in the Patna district of Bihar. It has been funded by AID Portland and AID Columbus in the past. The NGO approached us with a request to extend the project for further six months so that the vocational training center could continue to be operational.





NBJK has provided non-formal education for 164 boys and 101 gilrs in slums of Patna. 4 vocational centers have been started to provide training in tailoring and embroidery for girl children between the ages 13-18.. 1 of them is in Dunkaimli. It was started in August 2011. Initially 12 children were enrolled, the number was 22 as of January 2012. Previously allocated fund from AID Columbus was used to purchase equipment (sewing machines). The success of the project would be measured through the number of girl who are able to find jobs and support their families.





The amount approved would be used to handle teacher salary and administrative expenses from April 2012-September 2012. The goal is to keep the vocational training in Dunkaimli functional, so that the current students enrolled can complete the training in tailoring and be able to find jobs
