Our Story


Visiting India every summer, I would observe children from lower income families in my grandparents’ neighborhood after school every afternoon. I began helping them with their homework and introducing them to creative arts projects. 

It soon became clear that they thoroughly enjoyed, and benefited from, this extra-curricular outlet. I decided to register the project as a permanent non-profit organization, with year-round teachers and board members interested in the fields of education and community service.

Today, the learning center has 56 students and is funded entirely through donations by members of my school community. I manage the school via daily emails with the teachers and weekly video conferences with students.

Teaching and getting to know these students has taught me more about life and the value of education than I could ever learn in any classroom in America.
