Students + Friends, Shamli District, Uttar Pradesh, India, 2017

Last night I had a wonderful conversation with a dear friend, and this has given me immense energy going forward. The last two weeks of this year are a great opportunity to make a difference in the world, and to receive a tax deduction as well. Anyone interested in joining us will also be matched 1:1, making that difference that muchmore incredible.

In two months I will be standing in this very spot, as well in adjacent villages and madrasas, in order to gain further understanding of the need and to help implement the educational program desired by the community. The result so far has been very encouraging, and we have begun the implementation. We have gained the support of the community, began the process of putting together at least three sewing centers, and are working towards our first model, village school in the region.

These girls live in the village which will host the model school, and have sensed that something is happening. The energy is palpable, and their excitement has come through their portraits. It has been my honor to bring this proposal to this circle, and I look forward to sharing more news as it develops.
