In the shadow of the Taj Mahal, where the visitors are many and their resources often abundant, there is a small primary school operating for poor local children. This is a local initiative with limited funds.
Originally named the Sant Khabeer school, it is now supported by the Taj Ganj Welcome School Incorporated, an NGO (Non-Government Organisation) based in Victoria, Australia.
This school is non-denominational and receives no financial support from the Government. The school has had up to 115 students. In May 2012, the numbers were 70 or so – a better size given the small school size.
