ABOUT THE CHARITY

Established in 2015, this NGO’s mission is to empower students in developing countries to more easily access education while breaking down cultural and faith-based barriers. Academic partnerships between schools and their respective communities are forged while helping provide sustainable and adequate nutrition for our beneficiaries.  This is accomplished through programs that promote our holistic, research-based approach focused on Access, Nutrition and Curriculum. 

PROJECT DETAILS

This NGO will be in Suyalbari, Uttarakhand with a team of people during a busy 9 day period to: 

1) Improve access to education and curriculum by building a Solar Power Classroom  

2) Improve access to nutrition by implementing a nutritional program which includes a community supported agriculture program that the school will keep ever green.
