Care & Share John Lewis Foundation Girls' High School

In 2012 Care & Fair (India) and The John Lewis Foundation began a collaboration to support the efficient and effective running of the Care & Fair John Lewis Foundation Girls High School

The school aims to make education more accessible to girls from families of modest means, empowering them to make step changes in their own lives and the lives of future generations.  

The school is located in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, where there is a significant carpet/rug making industry.  

The beneficiaries of the school are 160 girls aged 14-18 years, predominantly from families who are carpet or rug weavers/workers.
