India has always fascinated us.
We are Dorothee (Yoga teacher and masseuse) and Christian (independent journalist and film maker) and are the founders of this charity.
Our hometown is Munich, but when we have the time to travel, our favourite destination is India.
In 2008 we made a journey to the north of India. One of our destinations was Rishikesh, where we stayed at a local Ashram. At breakfast we made the acquaintance of a young and lively Indian, who told us about their school project. Her name is Alankrita and back then she already voluntarily taught 50 children of needy families in her garden. She founded Indian Renaissance, an organisation to gain some assistance for her educational project. With the help of the organisation she wanted to raise awareness for the educational situation of indian children and women and contribute to enhance the equality of opportunities for them.
Alankrita and her enthusiasm deeply impressed us. Therefore back in Germany we discussed how we could support her in providing a better future to the children of Rishikesh. After a while we came to the conclusion that founding a charity would be the best solution to support individual projects of Indian Renaissance. After many visits to the local authorities and a lot of red tape we finally founded our charity BIKI e.V.
Now we hope that Alankrita's enthusiasm and commitment did not just encourage us, but will find many supporters in Germany and other countries, too.
leider konnten wir noch nicht mit dem Bau unserer neuen Schule beginnen wegen der Corona Krise.
Wir verteilen im Moment sehr viel Essen, Kleidung an bedürftige Familien und Obdachlose. Seit Februar 2021 hat auch wieder die Hälfte der Schule geöffnet und wir benötigen das Geld auch wieder für die laufenden Kosten, wie Miete, Lehrergehälter, Schreibmaterial usw.
Wir bedanken uns bei Euch für eurer Vertrauen in diesen schwierigen Zeiten.
