Gaurav Niketan Trust & Hyatt Regency Gurgaon
Hyatt Regency Gurgaon in India will provide a grant to Gaurav Niketan Trust, a small grassroots school that provides free education to underprivileged children ages 2 to 13. The students come from families of migrant workers who work on construction sites around Gurgaon, earning less than $35 per month.
The school originated as an open-air “school in the street” and still has only the most basic infrastructure for the students, who would otherwise not attend school at all. Students learn English, math, social studies, and science. The grant will provide basic amenities, improve the current facilities, and provide scholarships for the oldest students so that they can continue to pursue their education.
The school currently serves 200 students and the hotel team has been actively engaged since learn about the school. They have hosted several events for the students, volunteers have taught classes to students, and the hotel team even helped install a cement floor for the school prior to the monsoon season.
