In 2010, GreaterGood.org provided complete scholarships for 19 financially-needy girls in rural Rajasthan, India, to attend The Fabindia School. "We greatly appreciate your continued support to help us subsidize these girls' tuition and hopefully expand our reach in the coming year," said Katherine Allen, the John Bissell Scholars Fund Coordinator.
Since its inception, the school has been committed to encouraging education for girls in a culture where most parents who can afford school would send only their sons. To accomplish this, the school has a policy of subsidizing their tuition. In addition, the school enrolls and subsidizes tuition for children from socially and economically marginalized communities who otherwise would not have access to a quality education.
The Fabindia School is a non-religious, non-profit, private school for boys and girls ages three through 17. With a library, science lab, computer center, sports fields, and a forested area, as well as a remarkable teacher-student ratio of 1:24.
