Building Futures - Gurukul Children Academy
Objective of the project
To finance the construction of a cost-effective multi-functional primary school building for 300 children in a rural Indian village called Belsar (Uttar Pradesh).              

We World Without Obstacles (WWO), a small NGO and the only one working with children in Belsar, a rural village in Gonda District, a so-called backwards area in Eastern Uttar Pradesh (U.P.) in India. Our mission is to support the development of deprived communities, improve education, address public health, sanitation and environmental concerns and promote inter-cultural understanding around the world through cultural exchange, volunteer work and cultural activities. 
How did it start?
It all started 2 years ago when Anna, a volunteer from The Netherlands who works and lives in India, visited the Gurukul Children Academy in Belsar together with Bharat, founder of WWO. The Gurukul Children Academy was initiated in 2006 as a primary school by two individuals in Belsar, Mr Pawan Kumar Pandey and Mr Ravinder Kumar Pandey. They registered the school with the State Government of U.P. and started with around 30-40 children up to fifth standard in a very basic rented property consisting of a few brick rooms without electrician or sanitation facilities. In the meantime the school has grown to about 300 children up to eighth standard.
