Our goal is a clear one. We have ten 12th class graduates eager to continue their education. Our students are bright, committed and ready to work hard. All we need is you! ** As we've nearly raised year 1, we are pressing on for the 2nd year! $40,000 will provide 2 years of college education for all ten students. Most degrees are 3 years in India, so $60,000 is our ultimate goal. These numbers are round and rough for now, but they'll be fully laid out as everyone gets accepted. Thanks! **
As with most all higher education these days, the challenge is how to pay for it. Unfortunately, there is minimal aid available in India and loans are not practical for a children's home like ours. And so, as we have done for more than 70 years, we are seeking to partner with like-minded individuals to help lift these kids up. Luckily, university programs in India are relatively affordable by Western standards, so our goal is not as daunting as it might seem. Together we can actually do this!
This project has huge long-term potential to change these children's lives. Among our participants we have a future Architect, a Bio-Technician, a Social Worker, a Nurse, a Physical Education Teacher, a Forest Ranger, a Civil Servant, a Mechanical Engineer, a Medical Technician and an Editor! While we believe all of these kids have the potential to change the world, we know your help will certainly change their worlds forever.
