This is a quote from Dalpat Rathore Singth, the man in India who is facilitating girls' education at the Rajeshwar Secondary School:
"Our movement is going well & now we are supporting 22 young girls in RAJESHWAR secondary school. Please convey my kind regards to your friends & family who have supported the cause with their contributions. I am sure that by providing quality education to this underprivileged part of humanity, life will definitely change & grow better than the present moment."
So THANK YOU to everyone that has donated, we are making an impact in more than one way, and it would not have been possible without such a giving community. Peace!

Did you know that there are 115 million 6-12 year olds not in school, and three-fifths of them are girls? Did you know that one out of five girls in the developing world does not complete the sixth grade? Did you know that some of the reasons why girls are not in school are because fees for tuition, transport, uniforms; cultural biases that educate boys over girls; lack of female teachers; lack of sanitary napkins; lack of separate toilet facilities; sexual abuse from teachers; and child marriage?

Clara Johnson and Stephanie Brugger are two seniors at Woodside Priory School. They both share a common passion: ending the violence against women throughout the world. Clara this past summer travelled to Costa Rica to work in a safe house for sex trafficked women and discovered her passion to end modern slavery. Stephanie travelled to India and worked in many different schools, learning about the oppression and lack of education girls face in India, discovering her passion to fight for those without rights. For their senior project over the past few months, they have researched the cause of women's oppression and have come to a broad solution that can only solve a small part of the issue, but that is education. They chose to title their senior project "Roots for Girls" because they want girls to be educated so that they can avoid the trafficking industry in Costa Rica or the abusive domesticity in India. Clara and Stephanie also want to spread awareness about the many different forms of violence against women and on Monday, May 20th at Woodside Priory, they will be hosting a screening of the documentary "Tapestries of Hope" on surviving rape victims in Zimbabwe. All the funds raised, through bake sales, car washes, and the documentary screening, will be directly donated to the Rajeshwar Secondary School in Rajahstan, India for girl's secondary education and the Salvando Corazones safe house in Costa Rice for surviving trafficked women and the education of young girls. All the funds mean an education for a girl, to inspire her to become a lawyer, and perhaps to encourage her to break away from the bonds of her household. All the funds mean fewer women becoming victims to slavery, after an education taught them to have jobs and avoid trafficker's coercions. All the funds raised will create more positive energy for women all over the world, so hopefully one day men and women can live harmoniously.
