Today, Friends of Padhar Schools proudly joins the global community in honoring the remarkable achievements and contributions of women around the world. On this special day, we are particularly inspired by the incredible women who are shaping the future of education and empowering communities in rural India.

From teachers who nurture young minds with compassion and dedication to the mothers who support their children's educational journey with unwavering love, women play a pivotal role in the success of our schools and the growth of our students.

As we reflect on the theme of this year's International Women's Day, , let us reaffirm our commitment to creating a more inclusive and equitable society where every woman and girl has the opportunity to thrive and fulfill her potential.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the women who are making a difference in the lives of others, and we pledge to continue supporting their efforts towards a brighter and more equitable future for all.

YOU can show your support for women's education by donating to Friends of Padhar Schools. Your contributions enable us to provide quality education and empower more girls and women in rural India. Click here to donate: https://bit.ly/3VOZOFs

Happy International Women's Day!

In 2022, three young women from Bahiram, Maharashtra received full scholarships to attend Mure Memorial Nursing College through the Jaime Kim Memorial Fund. With the help of donors, Friends of Padhar Schools has provided tuition and fees, room and board to three young women: Ms. Angel Chauhan, Ms. Saloni Ingle, and Ms. Sonam Kasdekar. Angel, Saloni and Sonam are finishing their second year of Nursing School and just received their results from their first Board exams - all three did very well and passed with high marks. They have another full year of school to finish and several more Board exams but they are on their way! Many thanks to all who support the Jaime Kim Memorial Fund.

During the holiday season, as we reflect on the good in this world, we think of partners and friends like you. This year, thanks to your donations and support, we were able to send $29,530 to help fund scholarships for 54 girls and young women; desks and benches for student use; books and writing supplies; tuition and fees for 3 young women in Nursing School; sewing machines for those graduating from the tailoring program; salary help for teachers; and warm clothes for orphaned children for the winter.

We appreciate you, and hope that the holidays and the coming year will bring you happiness and success.

"I know how important education has been to me - from the preschool at Claremont United Methodist Church in California, through Vista del Valle Primary School, to El Roble Junior High and Claremont High School.... I want to give those experiences and opportunities to children who need a little help. I cannot change the whole world, but I can do this."

As we finish our Student Sponsorship program, we have 3 girls who still need sponsors. Will you help? All of the girls we sponsor are from village families that are struggling financially to afford the necessities of their school. Our support “fills in the gaps” with school fees, uniforms, books and stationary, and other school supplies. $100 is all it takes to support a girl for a year.

Today is the International Day of the Girl and we honor the girls and young women in our schools working so hard to get an education.

"This research by Save the Children India highlights the disproportionate impact of India’s Covid-19 crisis on girls, with lockdowns and school closures exacerbating existing gender inequalities in the country and hindering girls’ access to health, education, and play.

The report, The World of India’s Girls, reveals that only a third (33%) of girls in India attended online classes during lockdown, while two thirds (68%) struggled to access health and nutrition services. A further 80% were unable to access sanitary items due to limited government supplies, lack of money and shop closures."
