Little Stars School provides a free education for more than 900 children from underprivileged homes in Nagwa, Varanasi, India. It is the only school of its kind in Varanasi providing quality education to children from poor families from pre-nursery thru 12th grade. The school depends primarily on private donations and sponsorships as it is not funded by the government or big agencies.

The demand for this kind of education is growing. Fortunately we were able to build an expansion. Since 1996 the school has grown from 7 students to our current population. Our students can access a complete education and even have the opportunity to attend university.

Asha Pandey is the founder and director of LSS.

   I kindly invite you to meet the young people of Little Stars School. Please, share your loving kindness and talents with the students or hostel girls during a shorter or longer time of volunteering!   

Sandeep Verma (class 10)
Sandeep is the son of an alcoholic father. His mother cleans dishes in other houses. He explains their daily life, "My father grabs all the money of my mother. After school I work the whole night in a cycle stand of a nearby hospital. After that I come to school in the morning. I hope to become a soldier."

Hostel for Street and Orphan Girls

In 2004, recognizing there were no safe hostels in the city for street girls, Asha Pandey, with the generous help of friends from Italy, opened one on the 3rd floor of the school. The home accommodates between 25 and 35 girls who are attending the day school and being raised in a family atmosphere.

“I believe that we have all some time eaten the fruit from trees that we did not plant. In the fullness of time, when it is our turn to give, we must in turn plant gardens that we may never eat the fruit of, which will benefit the generations to come.” NR Narayana Murthy,”A better India, A better world”
