The Blue House Project is a non-profit organization founded to support disadvantaged families living in tents in the desert of Pushkar (Rajasthan - India). The families live in a tent camp and belong to the Scheduled Castes who are deprived of basic needs, stable income and education. The BHP strives to raise family living standards and break the intergenerational cycle of poverty.
Through Education, Employment and Basic Life Needs, we help children and families to escape the intergenerational cycle of poverty.
Basic Life Needs
The families live in poor circumstances in tents in the desert of Pushkar.
To support the families in fulfilling their basic life needs, we provide monthly food packages and daily lunch for the kids. In addition, we supply basic needs such as health care and housing.
We enroll children in a local private school in Pushkar and sponsor school fees, uniforms and books. After school, the students come to the project center 'The Blue House' for tuition, sports, playing and lunch.
All paid employees belong to the local poor community. We provide skills training to young women and sell their products. All proceeds go to the people who made the products.
The Blue House Project was founded by Dutch 21 y/o Jaira Sona Chin in 2016. The BHP is a grassroots non-profit organization, led by the founder with the support of a local youth- led team in Pushkar. All paid employees are members of the local disadvantaged community, emphasizing a bottom up approach that is community-driven.
