After my trip to India last Summer, our Friends of Padhar Schools' Board of Directors set an ambitious goal: to fund schools, students and supplies in the amount $11,100 for the school year 2017-2018. This was a lofty goal, almost twice the amount we'd raised previously.

And thanks to you, as of today, WE'VE REACHED OUR GOAL! FIVE MONTHS EARLY! It's been a great fundraising year - thanks to your participation and support!

So this year Friends of Padhar Schools has provided:
* Scholarships and support to 55 students at 4 different schools
* Needed repairs and equipment to 5 schools
* Stipends for Teachers at 1 school
* School Uniforms to almost 300 new students at 3 schools
* Books and Supplies to all 600 students at 1 school

What a lot to celebrate for this year! Thanks to you and may you be blessed as you've blessed the people in rural India this year.

Much love and gratitude, 
Krista Givens
Director, Friends of Padhar Schools
