Help a girl in rural Rajasthan, India attend school!

In India's northwestern state of Rajasthan, an underdeveloped, severe desert region on Pakistan's border, literacy rates are extremely low, especially among women.

Fifty bright, motivated girls at The Fabindia School in this harsh region need tuition help--the $25 per month tuition is simply an impossible expense for their families.

The Literacy Site is proud to initiate an exciting scholarship program to fund tuition for these 50 girls.

Sponsor a Literacy Site Scholar at The Fabindia School--just $25 keeps a young girl in school for an entire month!

Since its inception, the school has been committed to encouraging education for girls in a culture where most parents who can afford school would send only their sons. To accomplish this, the school has a policy of subsidizing their tuition. In addition, the school enrolls and subsidizes tuition for children from socially and economically marginalized communities who otherwise would not have access to a quality education.

The Fabindia School is a non-religious, non-profit, private school for boys and girls ages three through 17. With a library, science lab, computer center, sports fields, and a forested area, as well as a remarkable teacher-student ratio of 1:24, The Fabindia School offers an exceptional education to more than 700 students. It is a matter of pride that girls hold many leadership posts in the school.


Progress Report, November 2010

Donations to The Literacy Site Scholarship Fund so far have provided tuition for one full school year for 19 bright, motivated girls in rural Rajasthan, India to attend The Fabindia School. As our goal is to provide funding for 50 low-income girls to attend school, we greatly appreciate new and ongoing support to help us continue to subsidize these girls' tuition and, we hope, expand our reach in the coming school year.
