I’d like to introduce you to someone very special. This is Nagendri, an 11th grade She’s the First scholar from India. Just like me, Nagendri loves to read, sing & dance! She dreams of becoming an Indian Administrative Services officer once she graduates so she can help others break out of poverty. She rocks!
Nagendri attends the Shanti Bhavan school in rural India, an institution that provides its students with a world class education free of charge. I helped co-sponsor Nagendri’s tuition by hosting a Zumbathon at my school this spring! Each year, volunteers from around the world host creative fundraisers to sponsor the education of She’s the First scholars.
She’s the First is a non-profit organization that sponsors girls’ education in developing nations by encouraging volunteers to organize creative fundraisers. Like all She’s the First scholars, Nagendri will be the first in her family to graduate from secondary school!
