The Taj Ganj Welcome School
In the shadow of the Taj Mahal, where the visitors are many and their resources often abundant, there is a small primary school operating for poor local children. This is a local initiative with limited funds.
Originally named the Sant Khabeer school, it is now supported by the Taj Ganj Welcome School Incorporated, an NGO (Non-Government Organisation) based in Victoria, Australia.
This school is non-denominational and receives no financial support from the Government. The school has had up to 115 students. In May 2012, the numbers were 70 or so - a better size given the small school size.
Since early 2010, the school has survived on financial support from sponsorship through the Taj Ganj Welcome School Inc., set up to resource the school, and grow its role in providing a sound primary education up to Grade 5.
The Taj Ganj Welcome School invites your support, and the school invites you to visit in Agra, in Uttar Pradesh state in India.
So when are in India visiting the Taj Mahal, drop into the Taj Ganj Welcome School and meet Naim's Family and all the wonderful children at the school. This will give your trip to Agra and the Taj Mahal a much richer experience.
