#SheMustCount- Round 2

In the month of March 2018, FFLV was honoured by a second visit from Marie Avgeropoulos. Renowned actress and one of the lead stars of the popular sci-fi series “The 100”, Marie works actively to raise awareness about the importance of education for girls in India and as a global concern.  She was welcomed warmly by the school girls and a beautiful cultural program was organised in her honour where the students displayed their various talents.

Planting the Seed for Sandipani Muni School(By Ramesh Shah, London)

When I see how this project of a school has expanded; providing education to the poor girls of the Dham, I am filled with pride in Rupa’s work. I remember the day the seed was planted. That seed, since planting, has sprouted and grown into a wonderful tree, in whose shadow these girls are cared for and educated. I first visited Vrindavan in December 1990, and at that time was shocked to see such poverty. Vrindavan is the holy Dham and the most important place for all Vaishnavas.

I myself come from a poor background, and it was education only that allowed me to progress in life. This was my opportunity to give this same chance to the others. The other problem was […]
