The Joy of Giving Back

At Sandipani Muni School we are always trying to give the girls the best and helping them in ways they feel confident about themselves. We have been running an english reading program under the, support, guidance and inspiration of Urmila Mataji from USA. The head of the program Damini told us that for our English reading programme we have 120 kids aged 7-12 years. We are helping them enhance their English reading skills. Though this programme has been supported with volunteers from overseas but this year we didn’t get as many volunteers as expected and were in the fix as to what to do?, when we saw some of our older kids in the group started to help the younger ones. When asked if they would like to do this every day, their faces lit up and they said yes! These lovely dedicated, punctual and sincere girls has been helping since July of 2016 […]

Thank you Eddye

 This year we had a very interesting volunteer Eddye Lopez from Italy visit our school. He is a plumber by profession. Eddye is a very enthusiastic person who loved exploring the local sites. He along with our plumber Sanjay went around and fixed a lot of pipes in the building. The best thing about him was that though he could not speak or understand the local language he still knew his way out. Not only that Eddye would spend his evenings distributing Kichri at school to the poor families. He would make sure he was there every day. It was so wonderful to have him and his unique skill certainly helped the school a lot. Thank you Eddye for coming, we hope you come back again and we will remember you as an ever smiling volunteer 🙂

Tuk Tuk Challenge Impact

Dear Friends,  Thank you all for your wonderful support and participation in our recent Tuk Tuk Challenge. It was a great success and we are pleased to inform you that a total of 30,000 GPB was raised. This amount will be used towards the higher education of girls that finish their school, in particular for those girls who do not have a sponsor for their higher studies. This challenge has secured the future of so many girls and they can now confidently step into college. Without your encouragement and contribution, this was no where near possible. We really appreciate your help and to all the participants who were on road for 12 days to educate these girls, just one thing: Bravo!
