School on wheels is a great and innovative concept brought about by T.L. Reddy, founder of CLAP foundation, a non – Government organization at Hyderabad. She conceptualized the idea of teaching underprivileged children a decade ago. She taught children in tents before adopting to the idea of School inside a bus. Reddy is herself a teacher since 25 years.
The inside of a bus is a well furnished schools to attract its audience. Students group mostly comprise of children of rag pickers, maids & day labourers who cannot afford to go to school or drop out of school to earn a living to pay off debts.
Children studying in the school have high aspirations and their self confidence increases after enrollment and they dream big, they too want to do something for the society. Some one wants to become a teacher, a doctor etc and serve people like them who cannot afford high cost services.
