Our grassroots leaders are expanding to Hubballi!

Dear Milaan Champion,

We're excited to relay that thanks to your support we are now expanding the program to Karnataka, India! Our team has already recieved over 1000 applications in the district of Hubballi and we will be selecting 25 girl leaders at the end of this month!

We will start the training with our Development Center which will feature 45 girls and then move into our training with the top 25 girls having worked with a total of 45 amazing girls.

We will be sharing photos and videos as we walk along with these girls and we hope you will follow along with us on on our social media channels which are shared below. 

Thank you for your continued support and for being a leader in making this expansion happen!

Milaan Champions!

Wishing you a wonderful and colorful fall!

With the falling of the leaves, the social action projects are piling up as well. Fellows are preparing to participate in a very special training this November both in Uttar Pradesh as well as Madhya Pradesh.

As each fellow strenthens their peer groups in their communities, the reach of the program grows stronger, and we're excited to see some Fellows surpassing the 20 Peer minimum as well as adding boys to their groups as well.

We're proud to say that we've been able to see active transformations in many of the communities we work in and it's because of our amazing Fellows like Seema or Anjali.

We're also proud to be holding the 'Celebration of Girl Leaders' in Chicago and we would like to formally invite you to attend on Oct. 28th!

We always love to hear from you and would welcome your interest in the work of our Fellows or our upcoming event.

Check out more on our Fellows on our Facebook: Here!

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!
