Transforming the Manthan Program

Transforming the Manthan Program
Help us transform the Manthan Program and give rural Indian children a chance to succeed! The Manthan Program is an educational after-school program, meant to supplement a child's education. In many parts of rural India, government-provided education is not enough, and children lack many basic skills, like reading, writing and math. Regardless of their skill levels, they are often passed onto the next grade. This often results in rural Indian children not being able to reach secondary school, and ultimately, create a better life for themselves. The Manthan program aims to provide children with whatever skills they need - and are not learning in their day to day schooling. We are currently seeking funds to construct 3 new schools - in the state of Bihar, India; India's second poorest state. If we can construct these new schools from scratch, the Indian Government has agreed to provide funding - which will make the Manthan program a much needed permanent fixture in these building. Help the children of Bihar succeed in their educations so that they might one day achieve their wildest dreams!
