In November 2009 We visited New Delhi as part of a speaking tour arranged by our Indian representatives.
One of our representatives, Amit Aneja, suggested that we should take some time to look at the work of a project in the slums of the city called "Project Why," started in the year 2000.
The projects aim is simply to give the poorest children of the slums the same chance of an education, and therefore employment, as their better off peers. We were so impressed at how much had already been achieved with so little that we comitted to helping them as much as we can.
The Project Why Story.
Every Child that comes into contact with Project Why seems to have an astonishing Story and most of them are recorded by The Founder of Project Why, Anouradha Bakshi at www.projectwhy.blogspot.com
We have selected some of these stories here.
We are looking for any donations that will take us towards the point when Project Why can take the next step, putting that first spade in the ground that will allow Planet Why to become real.
Donations can be made direct to the project account in the UK.
