About a two years ago, my oldest daughter, Megan, fell in love with all things India. She decided that what she really wanted to do was experience this amazing country first hand, and began (at age 14) working toward that goal. She did some digging and discovered that Rotary Youth Exchange is the program that best suits her.  The local Rotary is incredibly supportive, and has done much to help raise money, and connect her with Rotarians in India. Then, she worked towards graduating h early (which she will in May, with a 4.0 GPA). Now: the final hurdle to her spending a school year with a family in New Delhi is raising the money (approximately half) so she can go.

Megan finally set up a blog: http://meganstriptoindiayay.blogspot.com/ There aren't any posts on it as of yet, but there will be (hopefully) lots of pictures. I'll try to keep everyone updated as she does post, but you're always more than welcome to stop by anytime. Thanks again for all your support.
