I had an adventure this summer in Agra, India trying to make a difference in the lives of 35 young women of Nagla Kharga Village. I'd like to share my experience with you; I hope their stories move you as much as they have inspired me! Thank you for reading and feel free to contact me [by posting a comment/question] if I can be of assistance in any way, in a similar endeavor of yours!
...something I realized early on and remembered everyday while lesson-planning. This thought kept me going when frustrated with slow progress; and kept me down-to-earth and realistic when I saw success.

I believe in humans' collective ability to realize the society that we choose to envision, and in our individual capacity to become better everyday.
