THE STORY:

Uttrakhand is a state with some of the best schools in India. The education imparted by schools is amongst the best in the country. Schools like The Doon School, Welham's, Cambrian Hall, Woodstock, St. George's Mussorie & Rashtriya Indian Military College (RIMC) are just a drop in the ocean. A town with 1300 small and big schools makes Dehradun the capital of Uttrakhand a hotspot for education.

Apart from these premiere educational institutions of the country there are some smaller schools that have been in existence for a very long time. These schools have been started by visionary educationists who wanted that the same education should reach sections of the society that are not privileged enough to send their children to the best schools.

Little Flower Jr. High School (LFS) is situated on the outskirts of the city of Dehradun, 45 minutes away from Himachal Pradesh making it a beautiful location for children to study. The school was started in 1993 by an educationist, Arundhati Sen with the vision to impart education to children who cannot afford the premiere institutions of the country, yet have the ability and acumen to do well in life.

Children from various backgrounds flocked into the school and so started the journey of this institution. The school has produced some brilliant students, though they came from humble homes they proved that the right guidance and support can make a difference in anyone's life.

Little Flower School is looking for fund raisers who can keep this institution going and can help the members expand the existing facilities so that the children can benefit from it.

In 2010 this small school which is the only school in the heart of the villages of Uttrakhand was hit by a massive flood and the school lost land and a part of its building. There was water inside the classrooms where the young children study.

A school that primarily focused on educating underprivileged so that there was hope for a better tomorrow is now struggling to see some hope of survival.

I want to help this visionary who has silently contributed her entire life to people who could have never imagined studying in an English school with NCERT syllabus. It leaves be completely humbled and in awe to see how some people keep contributing to this world and never wait or expect anything in return.

I took it upon myself to help this school and ensure Arundhati Sen's work is recognized and appreciated. I want anyone/everyone who thinks that it is worth the effort to contribute to the school. The floods took away a part of the building which comprised of toilets for the children. Fortunately, some people who have been watching her work endlessly came forward and built a make shift arrangement for the children.
