The Turn The Bus Story


Volunteers Needed! You can help our video teachers even if you do not know Hindi. Want to share the magic of Toni Morrison or Martin Luther King or your love of History with kids in rural India? You can create lesson plans in English by tapping into your skills of storytelling and teaching. Our teachers can translate them into Hindi and teach the chapter on video. Contact the Founder at bghosh@turnthebus.org

Micro-volunteering rocks! Did you know that the world's best organizations encourage their employees to volunteer for nonprofit organizations? Some, like Microsoft actually make their conference rooms available during Give month to host micro-volunteering events. Thank you, Brian Lysaght, BSEE, PMP Tommy Ramsey Barbara Acevedo Visser, CPCC, ACC and other Give month leaders! (Photos from Oct 2019).

Our mission is to enable students in the remotest parts of India get access to curricular education by leveraging the rising smartphone access and cheap data connectivity.

  • Government of Bihar, through its Bihar Rural Livelihood Promotion Society (BRLPS) and autonomous body, spearheads Jeevika, also known as the Bihar Rural Livelihood Project (BRLP)
  • Access to the mothers ensures access to children of these most disadvantaged sections of the population
