Science books ready to go to Uganda

g4g Science Libraries help the community
g4g Science Libraries help the community

Thanks to the great efforts of our g4g team, interns & school children, our office is now filled with science books just ready to be shipped to a school and orphanage in need.  Where next?  Our books will be headed to a special school in rural Uganda - we just need your continued support to raise the funds for shipment.  Thank you again for all your great help so far! 

Our next collection of science books will take place at the International School of Brussels at our g4g day on 29 November.  So, we will have more books to contribute to the next science library!

Greenlights for girls in science are abound!

So many happy girls in Amman, Jordan!
So many happy girls in Amman, Jordan!

The support you are giving is just at the right time!  Because of your help, we are launching greenlight for girls in the greater NY area.  Tomorrow will mark our first Trick-or-Treat for Science as g4g goes into the NY school systems for a Halloween-themed science fun fest.  In just 30 days, we will be holding our 5th annual g4g day in Brussels, our headquarter city.  As with all g4g events, we aim to have 20% of the girls participate from less economically advantaged areas - and your support helps us to do just that... thank you!!

Our launch in Amman, Jordan is sadly already behind us but we look forward to next year already.  Thanks to a simply amazing g4g team, we were able to reach 140 girls - and engage 80 volunteers -- all to share and show their passion in STEM subjects.  We believe these pictures show all of our joy for this great event.

Stay tuned - and thanks in advance for your continued support (and sharing the message with friends) as these are the next new g4g venues on our planning wish list for the coming months:  Barcelona, Detroit,Liverpool, Seattle, Athens, Milan, Costa Rica, Columbia, Rajastan, Bangalore, Calcutta, Kinshasa, Uganda, Senegal - and much more.

Anything is possible!

Big news! Our first g4g scholarship girl has...

Thanks for reading more!  Yes, big, big news to share!  One of our first greenlight girls in India to receive the g4g scholarship to go to university has....just graduated!!  And with flying colours!!  Congratulations to Sindhu for successfully reaching her Bachelor of Science degree!  And the news doesn't end there... she's already applied and been accepted with a scholarship from a university in Banglore to go for her Masters in Computer Science.  We couldn't be more proud and excited for her!

Your donations have enabled us to provide scholarships to university for girls in both the Parikrma and Nele schools, both dedicated to helping children living in the slums and on the streets in South India.  We continue our work on to Rajasthan where we are focusing on the rural girls to enable scholarships.  Our challenge in this area is to find girls pursuing higher education in the villages in Rajasthan. We have selected the Jaipur district and the search is on!  We will start with a few students ready to continue their schooling and these selected girls can be a role model for others to follow.
