Courtney Schrieve, one of our US volunteers, has been supporting Indha by showcasing Indha products in Washington for the last one year. She recently invited current or former educators and nurses from Olympia to purchase our products. The products were quite a hit with them, as you can see in these pictures and we sincerely thank Courtney for her contributions.
Support from Lacey Rotary
Courtney Schrieve, a Rotarian, visited the project in 2006 as part of Group Study Exchange and has challenged fellow Rotary clubs in South Sound to donate as well to this worthwhile international service project. She also challenged some Rotary clubs in India to match any donations we raise ! As a result, Lacey Rotary has committed $1,000 to Literacy India, a community literacy program in villages outside of Delhi.
Capt Indraani Singh, the founder of Literacy India and a female pilot, recently emailed Courtney with news from the project (which includes everything from street plays to vocational centers to youth and adult literacy). Indraani says "We now have over 600 children coming to school. Rotary Club of Chanakyapuri helped in setting up a safe drinking water facility and a Vocational center for girls to learn stitching and tailoring. This program has been a great success. We also now manage a health outreach facility in the village. On behalf of everyone at Literacy India, my grateful thanks for your plans for more contributions. We are truly overwhelmed."
