The Focus of a Child

A great article on how development must include showing dignity. Something that we strive for in providing quality education for all of our kids. Each of us have value, irrespective of our backgrounds or socio-economic standing. "The Focus of a Child" project is all about this. Stay tuned for how you can be part of upholding the dignity of a child.

Development without dignity – is not worth having. 19/04/2016

Redding man creates international change

The Action News interview of the school that I run in Kolkata India. Pretty crazy how this came to be! Thankful to Angela for taking the time to interview us and work on the story!! Some of the stuff is not fully accurate but she only had a couple of hours to edit the story and given the amount I spoke when she was recording me, she did a really good job!

Educating the poor in my hometown of Kolkata India.

Pictures from the (Best looking classroom competition}. All the students were excited about the competition and really got into the competition. Please take some time to look at the artwork on the walls. Some amazing stuff. Pretty cool to see children that don't have much do such amazing work. It is only because of the support of our supporters that these children are able to express themselves like this. We just installed softboards in the classroom so that these children could show off their work. Days like today make it all worthwhile. Thank you for believing in us and supporting us. Be waiting for even more amazing stuff as the days go by. If you want to be part of this - please visit our indiegogo site - Partner with us to create an environment in our school that ignites the dreams and desires of the poor in Kolkata India. 11/06/2014
