IMPACT India is a new group on campus that is collaborating with an established NGO in New Delhi to help provide education to girls of economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds in rural India, who would not otherwise have such opportunities. Our mission is to fund a Wesleyan-sponsored school that will increase access to primary education for girls between the ages of 6 and 14. We’re also trying to create curricula targeting their personal needs. This will encourage them to become independent thinkers in an intellectually stimulating environment, which will ultimately aid in transforming these communities.
Our first meeting is on Thursday so come on by to hear what we’re hoping to do and share your own ideas! We’re open to any suggestions, and will have yummy Indian desserts!
Date: Thurs., April 19
Place: 41 Wyllys Room 115
