Literacy Through Unity Week 2017
This year, our national beneficiary is Asha for Education. Asha is an organization which is dedicated to improve India by focusing on basic education. Their belief is that education is an important requisite for socio-economic change. Volunteers are involved with and support projects that help this cause.
One of their current projects which we will be donating to is Project Aarti Home. Aarti School currently has 300 children in all classes from kindergarden to 10th grade. They are starting new innovative education programs that teach kids–both boys and girls–through experiential projects that not only prepare them for the real world, but also instill in them a sense of confidence. The programs would include setting up labs for Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Math, Computers and Sustainability.
