Good news and some not so good news

I am very pleased that Lumos Labs, creator of Lumosity (www.lumosity.com) has agreed to partner with ASSET to do a pilot with their highly acclaimed LEAP program. Please see link below:

The program was developed by scientists at Stanford, Columbia, UCSF, Berkeley and Harvard. I believe access to Lumosity will bring tremendous exposure to our work.

We received a donation of 20 desktops and accessories from FirstSource in bangalore. These computers will be used in the new ASSET center in Hubli, Karnataka.

Jim Emerman, Executive Vice President, Civic Ventures has nominated me to be a speaker at the 2013 TED Conference in Long Beach, CA.

The issues that caused cancellation of classes at Prajwala, our partner in Hyderabad have been resolved and the English Helper program training will commence on May 20, 2012.

At our Delhi center, English Helper program was started in February 2012 with 20 female students, all children of sex workers. This center is managed by our partner Apne Aap. Due to some misunderstanding, mothers pulled the girls out of the English Helper classes and only three students are in attendance, We are working diligently to address the problem and get the girls back in the class.

My sincere thanks to all the donors who continue to support our work with their regular monthly contributions
