Rebuilding Education

Helped to rebuild partner school destroyed by the earthquake

Providing Access to More Books

Thanks to our partners LitWorld and Global GLOW, we were able to help build a library for the school and the community, which now provides access to books that the kids actually want to read.

Building Confidence and Strength through Sports

Through a partnership with a local sports organization, we are providing more opportunities for girls to participate in sports and games.

Turning the School to a place of Learning rather than Teaching

As part of the new school, we have helped to set up a Science Lab where students can now do more hands-on activities and learn through experimentation rather than just through books and memorization.

When I first became a Rukmini Scholar, I could hardly smile and talk in front of others, but now I can speak in front of groups and I cannot stop smiling.
