Spring Break


Meher is back from school for a short break. She goes back on April 3rd, when the school will announce the end of term results. Then she will be entering Class 1! She is happy to be home and spending a lot of time at the Women's Centre, as always.

Visiting Day and End of Term

Shanti Gyam International School's year just ended and all the students are now at home. Meher and Utpal will be returning for a little less than a month for a summer camp the school is running this year.

Here is a picture of Meher with Austen, a volunteer from Barrington who is working at the Women's Centre.

School Visitors Day

Recently, Anou and Austen went to Meher's boarding school to see all of the Project Why kids. They are all doing well and receiving good grades in school as usual. Meher and Utpal may stay at Shanti Gyam International School over the summer, as there is a special summer camp program available this year.

Save the Women's Centre!

I am including a link to a post from Anou here in an appeal to save the Project Why Women's Centre- due to lack of funds it is in danger of being shut down. It was while I was teaching at the Women's Centre that I first met Meher. 300 children, most of them little girls, are being educated there and countless work to benefit the surrounding community and women in particular takes place there.
