This is a picture of our first school bus, purchased in 2002 with the help of Swamiji and a charitable organisation from Hamburg, Germany. Together our two buses bring a total of 250 students from 10 villages in the surrounding area. Villages are chosen according to the interest of the population, the status of education in the village and accessability. The response from the villages is so good that we now have trouble to fit the students in the buses. On one route the above bus, which has 27 seats, brings 80 students. We have tried to restrict the numbers but the locals won't take no for an answer. The driver goes slow and as usual in India - it functions!
