Review for Jai Bhim International, San Francisco, ,

Rating: 5 stars  

My involvement with Jai Bhim International (JBI) spans several years now and my admiration for the mission and work of the organization has only grown in that time. While remaining small and nimble, the organization has only grown in its ambition and successes with several additional classes of students having completed our program.

JBI collaborates with disadvantaged Indian youth and their families on education, leadership development, and social entrepreneurship. Through our program, we empower a new generation of global leaders to create innovative solutions to the problems faced by their communities. JBI supports the healing of trauma suffered by historically-oppressed youth from forces outside and within their communities through the creative arts, storytelling, drama, and English language learning. Our programs, including the living classroom gardens and computer labs, encourage personal and societal transformations for all involved.

Review for Jai Bhim International, San Francisco, ,

Rating: 5 stars  

Jai Bhim International's (JBI) mission is to empower youth and their families in economically and socially marginalized communities of India through education, leadership development, and social entrepreneurship.

I began my relationship with JBI as a friend and supporter of its mission. As I learned more about its work over the years, and thanks to the dedicated and enthusiastic work of the organization's founder, Dayamudra Dennehy, I naturally developed a desire to become more involved. Today, I am a proud board member of JBI, working alongside Dayamudra and our other board members to support an incredibly dedicated staff in India headed by Arun Boudh.

Together with the team on the ground in India, the board works to find new programmatic areas and efficiencies in existing programs resulting in an increased impact on students, teachers, and their communities.

I truly believe in the work of this organization and am a long time admirer of its namesake, Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar. Together, board, staff, parents, students, and our supports work together to empower historically disadvantaged and marginalized communities.

Please support JBI in any way you can.
