Renuka Gupta from PPES Visits REAL

Last weekend we had the pleasure of meeting Renuka Gupta from Pardada Pardadi Educational Society (PPES) here in Portland.  I speak for all of us when I say that it was very inspiring to hear about the work that is being done at PPES, one girl at a time, by the dedicated staff and volunteers at PPES.
I’d like to thank all of you for taking time to meet Renuka  (youth board members and parents in the afternoon, and board members, loyal supporters and parents in the evening). A special heartfelt thanks goes to Rupa and Nitin for hosting us for in the evening (Kimaya, you were there in spirit with us!) and to Jyothi for preparing a delicious Friday lunch.
On Saturday Renuka went to the bay area where Rohisha introduced Renuka to Karl Mehta at Stanford at an event called The India Hackathon.
Renuka,
We loved having you….we felt the warmth of your work, similar to the Olympic Torch as it travels from place to place, connecting us all to the mission of Education for All.
Looking forward our next visit at the school.
