g4g scholarship girls after lunch with Chandana
Greenlight for girls is pleased to report this quarter's status of our young girl scholars pursuing their higher education in science in Bangalore, India. Our scholarship recipients are now enrolled in their very first semester of university! In fact, these bright girls are currently experiencing their first major exams. The generous donations from our globalgiving community has provided their tuition fees, book fees, exam fees and the tranportation so thay may live and/or visit with their families. Greenlight for girls has provided the opportunity to meet with them outside of their studies as well. Our Board Director in India has met the girls, treated them to lunch and coached them on their studies and future. This will continue throughout their programme. In fact, after their exams, we will be arranging a special plant tour for them with one of the major employers in the area. These scholars will now comprise a special group of greenlight for girls Ambassadors in the area. They will continue to play an important role to encourage and inspire more girls and boys to pursue their studies, esecially in the STEM subjects. We look forward to bringing you the next news of the educational pursuit of these special girls.
