A Better Education for the kids of Asia's Hope India
A new school year brings new schools
In 2016, we made significant changes to our elementary education strategy in India. After months of discussion and with the guidance of our Indian co-directors Sunil Tamang and Amber Gurung, we closed the doors on the elementary school we had been operating since 2012. Although our children had received an adequate education in our school, we concluded that, at this time, we lack the financial and human capital we would require to sustain a level of excellence consistent with our values in an increasingly complex regulatory environment.
Real Wood Floors (West Plains, MO), which had sponsored our school in India, has stepped up once again and has increased its level of funding, allowing us to send our kids to local private schools that have the resources to give our children the high-quality education they'll need to succeed in a highly competitive Indian university system. We are thankful for Real Wood Floors' courageous leadership, and we're looking forward to partnering with other businesses to meet the needs of this generation of students and the next.
