Nanubhai Education Foundation
October 15, 2009

As part of my graduate program in Economic and Political Development at Columbia University, I was required to do a summer internship. I found the Nanubhai Education Foundation at an NGO Fair, and was immediately impressed by the passion and effervescence of some of the volunteers and staff. Thus, I decided to pursue an internship in India with the Foundation. I can today say with 100% confidence that Nanubhai is doing AMAZING work for education in rural India. My firsthand experience in some of their target schools really exposed me to the lack of capable teachers in many of India's schools. The need for Nanubhai's services is real, childrens' appetite to learn is massive, and the passion and committment of Nanubhai staff is inspirational. I hope I can remain involved and spread the word about the wonderful and critical work that Nanubhai Education Foundation is doing.
