The Ann Foundation began a new partnership with the Ahmed Educational and Welfare Society after working with the Gayatri Foundation, in Bihar. Farhat Nasim applied to teach with the Foundation, but was inspired by Ann to take up a new project for at-risk children in her neighborhood. She now runs the society through her home and currently assists 25 children in getting an education, at no charge.
The society aims to provide these children with access to knowledge, with a goal of empowering them and ultimately helping them to become economically independent individuals. On offer are courses in basic English, behavioral skills and math.
When these children watched our Skype classes for the first time, their smiles warmed our hearts.
