Support in building India's first gender-free school
We are working on starting India’s first gender-free school for children who are experiencing gender dysphoria or gender non-confirming in Jamui, Bihar with 20 children in March 2022. I am raising funds to run this school as a scholarship per child. You can donate any amount as a contribution and that will help in providing access to education to gender marginalized children.

After doing a lot of research we found that there is a high need to rescue children who are experiencing gender dysphoria or non confirming and provide space where they can study in a safe space. On another side, we found that the root cause of all gender-based issues is Gendered practices from childhood in the home and school. So, why not have a school where gender doesn’t matter. This school will be a residential school where 60% of children will be who are experiencing gender dysphoria or non-confirming and around 40% would be other children from the local community.
Where we are now in this planning
Simultala is a very historical place where around 500 bungalows are still there which belongs to Bengali and Britishers. But right now because of Naxal, no tourism or any other development work happening. Farmers left the farming and their children don’t have access to education. One railway line between Patna-Kolkata crosses from this village. The nearest airport would be Deoghar, which is 60 KM from Simultala.
Right now we are working on developing a curriculum and collaborating with similar mindset people. We are also in the process of incorporation and our organization name would be anantmool. Right now we are raising funds for the first batch pilot program. This will help in understanding the feasibility and raising more funds to continue the school.
