PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

There is a school in rural India that serves only girls who live below the poverty line (30 cents a day).  But the school also serves the community with health and economics.  My school travels there once every 2 years, and each time it is a life changing experience for the group.  How can we keep the connection going between trips?

Project Collaborators:
Collaboration!

Yes! Other schools visit this school and have similar, life changing experiences, but the problem is always maintaining the connection once we leave again. Both our school and the school in India want to make this open to all the groups that visit the school, and then maybe use it to help others learn about the school and what they do and how that model might spread!
