Foundation’s Night Out At the Movies

9 extraordinary girls from 9 countries, written by 9 celebrated writers and narrated by 9 renowned actresses. Girl Rising showcases the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world.  This inspirational movie speaks to exactly what Rukmini Foundation has been working towards, and we are taking a few supporters out to the movies to see examples of empowerment through education.  If you are in the Pittsburgh area, you might want to join us.  Check out our event on Facebook.

Engaging Young Minds to Gain Valuable Insight

We are constantly looking for innovative ways to improve. By leveraging the creative minds of college students in Pittsburgh, we hope to gain insights on how we can better fulfill our mission of empowering girls through education.

Learning Through Travel

Although only indirectly involved, Rukmini Foundation (RF) was proud to be associated with the SAYS 2013 program. This program gives students from South Asia an opportunity to travel to the US as part of an exposure visit.  Through this trip, these students learn about new cultures and about themselves.  RF was proud to have helped students in Pharping prepare for interviews for this program and was very excited to hear that a local student, Prtaik had been selected for this program.  Read our Program Manager’s post about what this opportunity means for Pratik and for the other students who were grateful just for the opportunity to take part in the process.

Strengthening our ties with LitWorld by opening LitClub Niharika

At the heart of LitWorld are the clubs that give students a chance to experience and share the joy of reading.  These clubs, known as LitClubs have been formed all over the world, and now we are proud to finally start one in Nepal also. Read this great post by LitClub co-facilitator and Rukmini Foundation Didi (Surabhi Sharma).
