Gift Preschool Education to Children in India
This project seeks to raise funds for over 700 children who can be enrolled in our kindergarten programs in 400 villages in Karnataka in 2016. These children are either orphans or belong to very poor families some of them with family incomes as low as $15 per month. These scholarships will ensure that their children are not denied access to education during the critical early formative years which are so crucial to their development and success in the later years. project reportread updates from the field
