Dear Milaan Champions,

 

This July brings students back together and ready to tackle the new year with fresh social action projects and new lessons for their peers.

With the success of the social action projects in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh last school year, we're looking forward to seeing fresh new faces and ideas to address barriers to education for students in rural India.

Last year students tackled everything from bathroom cleanliness in school to promoting more girls in sports. Follow along with us on social media to hear more on the community action as well as to hear more from the girls themselves!

As always, thank you for your support for the program! Stay up to date and in touch this school year! We always look forward to hearing from you on our program or on our larger work in India!

Dear Milaan Champions,

As we draw closer to Summer and students prepare to complete their years, we're excited to disclose that hardworking fellows found time to go out among their community members and enact Social Action Projects.

Fellows focused on a variety of different subjects and approached their communities with the support of their peer groups. Topics covered include hygeine, sports, and science.

As it warms up in Uttar Pradesh, students will take off a month in order to consolidate and prepare for the new school year in July. We're looking forward to starting the next year on our feet with students already having excited their community about getting involved with their projects!

Stay tuned for more in July on the new year and the exciting plans for making a difference that can begin to radiate change and continue to progresss on the transformations started by the fellows!

As always, we encourage you to stay in touch and reach out with questions on our fellows or the program. We also encourage you to follow along on social media in order to get more timely updates.

Thank you for your continued support of the program and the fellows. It's thanks to you that our fellows can continue to move forward as true agents of change!

From the Milaan Team - Happy Summer!

Dear Milaan Champions,

Despite the dropping temperatures, fellows are still venturing out into their communities to create social change. Students in Uttar Pradesh have been inspiring their peer groups to gather and create change. Projects range from creating a Social Action Fair to leading campaigns on the nessesity of cleaner toilets.

Over this weekend, we're proud to relay that fellows in the district of Sitapur gathered to share their learnings and build upon how they are working within their schools. 

Check out some of the photos taken by our fellows and please follow along on Facebook and Twitter for more on how our fellows are making an impact!
