This interdenominational school provides free education to about 560 children, half of whom are girls. Founded by Buddhist pilgrims,
it is funded solely by donations.

Once a year the students present a

Cultural Performance.

beggarI also took pictures of beggars when I was in Bodh Gaya that can also be used to help the poor of Bodh Gaya. On the Tom Riddle Youtube page, there are movies showing life in the village, ceremonies around the Mahabodhi Stupa park, and, of course, the movie about Bodh Gaya and the Prajna Vihar School.

If you would like to donate, there are many ways that you can do so.
