Two Girls + Onlooker, Village near Kairana, Uttar Pradesh, India, 2016


We now have 10 benefactors, and 14 more to go, thanks to our newest addition Nora Mcnamara!

14 More People x $20 per month = Their School (150 Children)

All are welcome to help us make a change in this exquisite village. This will be our model school, and from which we will expand to a deserving 120 villages. We feel this has incredible potential, and want our first school for these very girls to be truly established as a center of learning under the guidance of our dear brother Nirvana Bodhisattva.


These two young girls live in our hosts' village, and we were honored to photograph them early one morning as we visited their Mosque. We arrived well before the students, and witnessed their surprise as they walked into the building. They just stared at me, and wondered what our purpose was perhaps. The leaders of this region have been more than gracious to us, allowing us to make portraits of the boys as well as the girls... an incredible reaction truly.

Now we are moving forward with our first school in the region, thanks to the generosity of the local leaders. They have provided the land and the school building, while Nirvanavan Foundation is moving forward with their expertise in establishing a school.

We welcome all who feel that this might just be a perfect way to make a difference in a small village.
