In India, only one out of nine children finishing school manages to join a college. India has one of the lowest higher education enrolment ratio at 11 per cent. In the US, it is at 83 per cent. With almost half of the country’s population is below 25 years and 10 per cent of them  being between the ages of 18 and 23. One of the reasons is that the dropout rate is high. The financial burden on poor children to purchase basic educational tools such as pencils, textbooks or bags are simply too high.

From January 2015, Project Noah will be working with 5 schools in Rural India to ensure that the children have ready access to backpacks and stationery. This was made possible with Edutools for All initiative. The kids have benefited from it as they can now concentrate on studying and be part of the higher skilled labour force when they grow up. As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
