BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF RAMANAS GARDEN INC
Ramana's Garden is an orphanage and school for numerous homeless, destitute, and abused children on the banks of the Ganges river in India.
It is home to more than 60 resident children, many of whom have lost both parents. There are an additional 165 children from nearby impoverished families. Children are accepted to Ramana's regardless of religion or caste.
Twelve paid professional teachers lead a solid curriculum of core classes, including Math, Science, English, Hindi, and the arts. Volunteers from around the world assist with instruction as well as administration of the school. The education provided is on a par with the best primary schools in India, and thus will serve to provide the kids with opportunities for adult careers that otherwise would be unimaginable.
Graduates of the school are going on to higher level studies at top universities in fields like education, engineering, medicine and science. Ramana’s Garden India places a strong emphasis on environmental protection and creative expression such as painting, music, and dance.
