Help us offer graduating students opportunities beyond 5th Grade!

Right now, Anjali teaches through 5th Grade. But education doesn’t end at 5th Grade. Our goal is to ensure that all of Anjali's graduates complete their studies through 12th grade. Annual average tuition at a secondary school is 18,200 rupees ($280). With $10,000, Anjali can provide partial to full scholarships to students who can't afford a secondary education and who would otherwise discontinue their education to find manual work to support their families.

The goal of Anjali 2020 is to raise $170,000 to expand and upgrade our school, provide nutritious lunches and offer students opportunities beyond 5th Grade.

This Goal Is for $10,000.
