WAGE - International is happy to work with the 'Rainbow Program' at Loreto Sealdah, Kolkata, India, which seeks to integrate girls of diverse socio-economic backgrounds toward the common goal of breaking the cycle of poverty and empowering through education.
We work with the school by connecting our volunteers with the school, and by adopting projects in consultation with the school personnel.
In the next video, the founder of the program, Sister Cyril Mooney, who started the program in 1979, discusses socio-economic inequality in India and its impact on education. She shares her vision of the need for compassion to break the social and economic barriers, thereby empowering both the well-to-do and the underprivileged children, especially girls.
