Meher's Report Card

Meher is doing very well at school, as you can see from her report card below!

Meher at School

Last month, I went to visit Meher, Utpal, and the foster children from Project Why (Aditya, Babli, Vicky, Nikhil and now little Manisha) at their boarding school. The children were so happy to see us (my sister and cousins came as well) and very proud to show us around the school. Each child insisted we see his or her classroom, cupboard, and bed. They are all very happy to be there and told us how much they enjoy school. Meher in particular told me she enjoys schools, especially because "we eat lunch and play everyday."

Here is a video of Meher showing us her cupboard:
