Greetings from Seva Mandir!
The results of the Giving Challenge - after the final audit for unique donations - have come in. Seva Mandir was ranked number 5, and therefore did not get the award of $ 50,000 (which went to the top 4 organizations only).
However, we did raise over $ 40,000 for our Children's Education Programme, due to the support of over 1500 friends like you. This will translate into roughly 1000 children being able to attend a non-formal education centre for one year.
Equally important to all of us at Seva Mandir has been the support itself - the Challenge helped us reconnect with hundreds of old friends and to be connected to several new well wishers - who donated without even knowing us well! Your vote of confidence means a great deal to us, and we hope to continue to do work worthy of all this trust and support.
So, a very big thank you to each one of you who contributed and helped us reach where we did. All of us at Seva Mandir are deeply touched and also re-energized.
We also hope that some of you may stay in touch. We will be grateful for any advice from you. And should any of you have occasion to visit Udaipur / us, we will be honoured to show you the work that you have helped happen.
With warm regards,

On the 18th January 2008 three visitors from Netherlands visited the NFE Center of Kanpur village. The children were so enthusiastic to see them and read them a story written on the black-board.
The America's Giving Challenge has helped made a difference in the lives of over 5000 rural school-going-age children of tribal communities. We are thankful to all of our donors and supporters for putting their faith in our work and in our mission.
