One of our founders, Naman, traveled to India to visit the school in March. Naman used to teach at the school more than 5 years ago, when he attended Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), an engineering college located close to the school. In this visit, he met the new school principal, Anna, who was Vice Principal for several years until Vatsala, the former principal, retired last year. Anna comes with over 30 years of experience in education and is very dedicated to the children.
He also saw the school’s new activity lab, where the children get more hands-on experience with learning.
As a result of this visit, we also identified some top needs that we will support in the upcoming years:
- School uniforms and bags program
- Expansion of the lunch program
- Addition of new bathroom facilities
- Helping teacher aides and starting an e-learning program
