Slum School Rishikesh

This is the school where we are providing basic education to unprivileged children in Rishikesh.This is in the slums of Rishikesh where all migrants from other areas come to live.It is very near to the main centres of city either it is Luxman Zula or Ram Zula.It is just 20 minutes walk from bus station.

Accommodaton for volunteers:

Volunteers will have there own room in the family home with bed and fan. There is a bathroom next door for you to use. Indian meals will be provided with the family. Staying here would really give you the chance to be a part of an Indian family and experience real Indian culture.

Directions to school

How to get to the school from Laxmanjula. It takes about 40 minutes to walk there from Laxmajula. It is a really nice walk if you go in the evening time or early morning but I wouldn't recommend it in the mid-day heat.
