Summary

As every parent knows, offering even a single child a quality education can be a challenge. More than one child at a time can feel overwhelming! But at the Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission, a large children's home in the north of India, our goal is to enroll all ten of our 12th class graduates in top colleges across India.

Challenge

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 2, we are pressing on for the 3rd year! $60,000 will provide 3 years of college education for all the students in our program. (Most degrees are 3 years in India.) These numbers are round and rough for now, but they'll be fully laid out as everyone gets accepted. Thanks! **

Solution

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!

Long-Term Impact

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.
