We're on our way! One day into our holiday campaign, and we've already reached one third of our goal to fund two teachers' salaries for 2019 (including a generous offline donation of $2,500). Thank you so much for your support! To donate, click the link our bio. Here's a story from one of the remarkable young women of Yuwa: "When I was younger, I worked hard to help my family. With my mother, I watered the crops and planted and harvested rice. Several times a day, I brought water from the well. I went to a government school, and grazed cattle all afternoon. I thought studying was a waste of time. I knew that by the time I reached high school, I, like many of the girls I knew, would get married." 16-year-old Seema has big plans. When she first joined a Yuwa team, she was the smallest girl on the field. Today, she is a coach and manager of an enthusiastic team of more than 20 young players and one of the top students in her 10th standard class. In August of this year, Seema traveled by herself to the US to participate in a Young Leaders Institute at Washington University of St. Louis. She returned to India brimming with confidence and ideas, eager to keep exploring and show other girls in her village where education can take you. Seema hasn't settled for simply helping herself. In June 2018, she encouraged her family to send two of her younger girl cousins to Yuwa School. Seema offered to pay for their school fees herself with the money she earns from coaching. Today, Seema's two younger cousins are thriving in an educational environment that rewards creativity, curiosity, and generosity.
