Our next library has now started in South Africa!

The books are piling up!
The books are piling up!

The greenlight for girls office is now full of beautiful science books thanks to a recent deliver from our contributors.  The books are all ready to go to our new and established science libraries around the world. 

What's the most recent delivery that just left our office?  Thanks to all your recent contributions and support, we were able to collect and send science books for all ages to a community centre in South Africa!  They are currently en route and we can't wait to see the children's smiling faces when then arrive.

As with all of our books, our g4g team and interns have taken the time to inscribe and write inspiring messages for children in another part of the world.

We have more books ready to go -- and some special children in Cameroon and Uganda will be the next to benefit from these learning materials.

Inspiration from our scholarship girls in India

our next g4g kids!
our next g4g kids!

In the office the other day, we were all brainstorming about new science experiments to create and share with girls around the world.   A great idea came immediately to mind.  Let's try the experiments by Sindu, one of our university scholarship recipients in India!  She loves her studes - and she especially LOVES physics.  She is one of our great role models who inspires anyone to develop a passion and curiousity about science.  This is what our g4g Scholarship project is all about - providing opportunities to our next role models in science - creating the chain of change to keep the inspiration going from person to person, family member to friend, generation to generation.

Our girls in Nele have just started their new school year so we're happy to provide them with their tuition, book fees and medical expenses - all due to the great contributions from all of you.  Keep this coming as the next term approaches for our Parikrma girls.  We are also hoping to plan a big g4g day in India in January to bring all our girls together to be the workshop leaders for the younger ones.
