THE STORY:

Nalla Ayan Middle School, located in a rural village of South India, provides education for orphaned girls and boys from the most marginalized communities in the area. There isn’t anywhere else for these children to go to school. Nalla Ayan currently provides schooling from the 1st-8th standards. After graduating, the 8th grade students are meant to find jobs, get married, join the real world.

In reality, most of these children face homelessness, poor working conditions for little pay, and child trafficking.

Nalla Ayan, understanding this problem, have asked for help in funding an expansion to include the 9th and 10th standards. This level of education gives students the technical skills necessary to continue their school in publicly funded institutions, or to find quality employment.


The funding required for the expansion is $1650.

Why it's so important to me:

In the Spring of 2010, I lived at Nalla Ayan Middle School, working with Touchwood Ecological and Social foundation. Not only does Nalla Ayan provide schooling for these kids, but they provide housing and food for around 300 girls.

At night, the girls get some time to be creative. I walked in one night to a huge dance performance, with groups of 5-6 girls in costumes they had put together themselves.

Any school that can provide a sense of individuality, creativity, and self-respect amongst children who have lost their families, who are living in impoverished conditions, deserves our help.

Even if you can’t make a monetary contribution, help spread the word!

Expanding the school will provide these children with a life-long sense of stability and opportunity. I think that’s one of the most important things we can give.
