BestSchools is an innovative program from BestRunners, a nonprofit organization with a goal to help government schools in rural villages across the globe. The BestSchools program aims to uplift government schools by providing necessary infrastructure and education equipment to facilitate student enrichment.
The BR Giving program is actively engaged in serving the needy. The members get together once a week to donate food items to the food banks or cook and serve. In the first half of 2018, through BR Giving, program members have donated over 4,500 pounds of canned and fresh food and have served meals to over 500 people via cook and serve effort. The program has donated over $5,000 worth of commodities (including food items, gift cards, toiletries etc) to other local non-profits.
The local champion visits the school, validate the needs sent by the school, and send photos to the Education committee to supplement the requests. BestRunners educational committee makes the decision based on the local champion recommendations. Education committee then requests invoices from multiple vendors and co-ordinates with the champion to provide the equipment requested to the school directly.
Better education brings positive changes to society. The BestSchools program targets the rural villages to give them empowerment by aiding the schools with better facilities. This program helps underprivileged rural schools by better equipping with necessary educational supplies.
