***DONATIONS ARE BEING MATCHED UNTIL WE REACH US$1000 (ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS)***
We are raising funds to add a new Women's College and model Primary School to our existing Girls' High School at Uma Nivas in the Purulia District, one of the most needy areas of rural India
Our aim is to be an example of a high quality learning center that enriches the local rural life with culture, education and the inspiration to create future opportunities for employment and sustainable living in the locality. Through our modern, high quality education programmes we plan to generate possibilities for local young girls to be trained as teachers, builders, entrepreneurs and community organizers who will have job opportunities that will enable them to remain in their rural environment and develop it further. Our ultimate goal is to empower children from the primary school years with the tools to succeed in this rapidly changing world without losing their sense of identity.
