Since 2005 the Society has encouraged and supported schools and colleges along the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR) in improving young people’s awareness of the World Heritage railway that runs through their communities.
How We Help
Each year we fund a DHR Schools Awareness Programme with our invaluable partners, the ladies of the Inner Wheel Club of Darjeeling. The programme includes DHR-themed competitions (art, colouring, poetry, dancing and photography) refreshments and a train ride.
How You Can Help
By telling us of any links you have with schools or colleges along the DHR that might like more information about our activities.
By donating to our associated charity, the Darjeeling Railway Community Support (www.drcommunitysupport.org.uk) and allocating your donation to an educational project. Together we will make best use of your donation and give you feedback on how it has been used.
A Free Guide Book for Local Schools
Our colourful, informative DHR guidebook ‘Darjeeling’s Wonderful Railway’ is an ideal teaching resource. Local schools can obtain a free copy by written application of the Head Teacher to the Oxford Bookshop, Chowrasta, Darjeeling.
