The Causes

India

India School Fund is an innovative non-profit whose mission is to ensure effective delivery of community-driven education to break the vicious cycle of poverty in rural areas of India.   ISF aims at educating next generations in rural India to not only read, write and count but also to see and evolve their environment in a spirit free of constraints and rich of cultural diversity.



India School Fund operates in a state in India where 4 million children do not attend school, and where more than 50% of kids who complete primary level still cannot read and count. ISF creates talent around clusters of schools tied to the local culture and economy. Students will not only acquire basic literacy and life skills but also develop an entrepreneurial mindset early in their development. The objective is to see all children evolve into empowered citizens, entrepreneurs, employees or graduates of higher education, thereby moving forward on the ladder of development.

India

Building Blocks India is a proactive pre-school program to give slum children a good foundation in English language, arithmetic, general science, social and practical life skills at an early age of 3½ years through a fun, comprehensive curriculum.   Normally these children would not  have the opportunity to go to any early learning course due to economic difficulties.  However we have been able to fulfill this dream to receive an education totally free through the help of caring sponsors and corporate funding.
