nolvadex, who was amazing and kind to share a few minutes with us! He even requested the children make us greeting cards for our visit despite them not being in school at the time! The cute cards now sit proudly on my mantle piece, bringing me to smile every time I see them!
The principal told us most of the children work on the streets before and after classes to help provide for their families – these kids are nursery to 5th grade level. It’s amazing how bright the human spirit shines in them. It’s incredibly sad that the caste system is still prevalent in India today. It keeps repressing these children that attend Buddha’s Smile School and others like them from advancing in life. The caste system in India is the opposite of the American dream of “Rags to Riches.” But schools like Buddha’s Smile School are slowly changing this tide because education is the first step in empowering these people and breaking the caste system.
You can help Buddha’s Smile School with their mission through donations and school supplies. Every little bit helps! Please go online now and let these children know that they are not forgotten!
