Give Opportunities. Give a Future.

Tens of millions of children live in poverty in India, a majority of which do not graduate from elementary/primary school. Many remain illiterate throughout their lives, and work as paid servants of industries, businesses, and higher-class communities. Your support is more important than ever to help these children establish a new position in life and discover new opportunity for their future and the future of their families. Through education reform and development we can give these children a chance far beyond what is available to them today. We are also providing financial support, resources, and basic-needs items to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to learn and grow through an academic system that will support them until they are ready to take on the world. With your help we can pave the way for a new future in education, one that is free from discrimination against class, gender, religion, creed, or social beliefs.

Your gifts both large and small are significant contributions to our efforts in creating an academic environment that supports all students no matter what their dreams may be for the future. Artist, doctor, mechanic, engineer, or astronaut, all students should be free to explore their innate abilities to learn and grown. You gifts are essential for maintaining the quality of teaching and education to give every child the opportunity to turn their dreams into a reality.
