Hi all,

I am excited to report that we are still maintaining a great donor base, both in the US and in the UK. To those of you who have pledged your financial support: if we have met, I am more grateful than you know. If we have not met, I truly wish I could express my gratitude in person. Hopefully, I will be able to meet some of you in the future!

This October, I will be leaving the US and traveling to India for the next few months to work on the Sanjeevani Project in Ananthaiahgaripalli. The decision was solidified at a conference I had the pleasure of attending, well before I booked my one-way ticket. The Global Engagement Summit (GES) is a wonderful event hosted during the spring in Evanston, IL - it gathers individuals from so many different areas of the world, all connected by a motivation toward social change. GES not only helped me achieve greater open-mindedness with our project, but also introduced me to a network of incredibly accomplished individuals, with whom I still keep in touch. I don't know whether it was the infectious, and nearly tangible, desire for change that pulsated through the conference, or whether it was the inspiring mentors and mock TED talks that weekend, but I knew I would be spending my upcoming year in India once the conference was over. I highly recommend applying to be a part of the GES 2012 family, if you are interested in empowering yourself and others. You can visit the site at .

During my stay in the village, I will be searching for a sustainable path for our project. I also have the wonderful opportunity to teach English in the village, so I will be hosting classes for the children. In preparation for this course, I reached out to my grade school in New Orleans, LA - Isidore Newman. It took less than a few days for the Lower School administration to graciously agree to collect various supplies for me to transport to the village. The supply drive has been incredibly successful! I have attached a photo of just a few supplies we have received from kind individuals, and the Newman School Lower School Art Department.

The next time I report to you will be in India! If you would like to follow my personal journey during the trip, please visit .

Thanks for reading!
