We are Excited to let everyone know that we are working on a new project called the “Ancer End Illiteracy Scholarship.”
It is very unfortunate that in India there are estimated about 296 million illiterates, age seven years and above. The greatest numbers of the world’s illiterates are in India. According to an estimate, only by 2060, we may see universal literacy in India. More than two-thirds of the world’s 793 million illiterate adults (two-thirds of them women) are found in only eight countries and India is one of them.
Ancer started a school for the underprivileged children in India over 20 years ago. The school has been small, due to the lack of financial support. Yet the amount of children who need an education in India is multiplying. There is young man who joined our orphanage at a very young age. He came from a very poor background, and had no education at all. We brought him up in the orphanage, and right away joined him into our school (Gateway Public School). He studied at our school till 6th grade (our school only goes up to 6th). We then joined him into a private school near the orphanage. He studied very hard, and became one of the top students in all his classes. Now at the age of 27 he has a master’s degree in commerce, and is an English professor in a very prestigious college. He is now very active in ANCER, and helps tutor the orphans in our orphanage. He is giving back, just as much as he received. This is our vision friends. We want to be able to change all the children’s lives that come to our school. We want them to have an amazing story to tell, about how where you come from is not as important as where you are going.
With the upcoming school year coming up, Ancer would like to start the new program, “End Illiteracy scholarship” program. This program will assist many children to receive an education, and a better future. We would like to get schools, colleges, churches, businesses, communities, and ANYONE who is interested in the education, and future of the youth of our generation. We would like the support financially, as well as volunteer their time to help the school grow, by being able to support a child, or a classroom. This in return would help the school grow, as well as shrink the illiteracy in India. We want to be able to teach children in an innovative, exceptional way, and in return the children will have a talent to reach a better, brighter future. We want to be able to build a strong school, and give the best education we can.
These are the things Gateway Public School is lacking; a playground for our school, a better building to hold more students, a school bus, and teaching supplies. We also would like financial support be given as scholarships so we can bring more children into the Gateway Public School. If you would like to help, please contact us at: email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please check out or website www.worldancer.ogrg for more information. If you know somebody, or business that would like to help better the lives of many children, please pass the word on. We are just a small organization, with a BIG heart, trying to make a BIGGER difference in this world we live in.
