Bhola is a migrant worker from a rural village of Madhya Pradesh, India, who in 2005, at the age of 19, was employed at our factory in India.
In 2009, Bhola got married and in 2011, he became a father to a beautiful daughter. He named her Chandni (moonlight).
Since Chandni’s birth, Bhola mainly fussed about one thing – to give Chandni the best of everything.
In India, A$ 60 a month per child goes a long way towards education & health care.
Every parent aspires to give his or her children the best education.
Bhola’s aspirations were no different.
But due to financial limitations, people like Bhola would invariably have to send their kids to a public school in India.
Public Schools in India are very unlike public Schools in Australia.
Average Student to Teacher Ratio is 70:1 with very basic studies imparted through year 10.
Most students do not have access to study material or proper nutrition during school days. And it is not uncommon to see kids drop out of public schools before they finish year 10.
Children are not only a nations’ strength & future, but also our responsibility to nurture them and provide as many opportunities possible for their better future.
As responsible employers, we decided to do something for kids of our employees.
Bhola Foundation was initiated in 2014 as a non-profit fund, specifically to provide free quality primary & secondary education to all children of our employees.
Crank Furniture donates 3% of our annual turnover to Bhola Foundation Fund every year.
Today, Bhola Foundation supports an average of 110 children aged between 5 and16 years, providing them with free education in private schools, free school uniform and study material as well as free health care, if required.
As our customer, you are contributing to this noble cause.
Our employees and their family thank you for your support & contribution.
