Connect to Affect: India

Raised by 32 people in 10 months
Over 200,000 students drop out every year in the Telegana state of India.  Many of them are girls due to a lack of toilets in the schools. Cross Cultural Connect's mission is to work with Fuel Foundation of India to help improve the overall conditions of schools and connect students to other students in the United States.

Fuel Grammar School is a one of the many schools founded by Fuel Foundation here in India. It was designed specifically to provide free education to orphaned children and students in high poverty. There are a total of 80 children at this school with 5 teachers on staff including the principal. Our last fundraiser provided 10 laptops to the school in Hyderabad. Students will connect with other students around the world through our CCC program. The aditional laptops will go to neighboring schools in villages for teachers.


The head of school, Anand and his wife, Vijaya have been dedicated to student success over 20 years. They both worked as teachers, Anand 15 years and Vijaya 20, before Anand started the Fuel Foundation where he serves as head of school at Fuel Grammar School and his wife, who continues to be a teacher.


Fuel Foundation also work to improve the conditions of multiple schools in village communities in the state of Telangana. They work to remodel schools that have no furniture, no paint on the walls, and no play ground equipment.  Many of the schools also have no toilets, something that causes girls to drop out of school in their later years of elementary. Fuel Foundation constantly works to provide a better education to hundreds of students around Telangana.
