Retesh is only four years old, but he’s already known his share of hardships.

Most Indian children begin their formal schooling at age three. Last year, Retesh attended a local anganwadi. An anganwadi is a form of early childhood education and family support provided by the Indian government as part of a movement to improve child health and nutrition. Many anganwadis serve children well. Unfortunately, Retesh’s experience wasn’t a positive one. He came home each day anxious and upset. His parents had to do something!

They heard about the Good Shepherd School in their area and decided to transfer Retesh this year. Now, he is active and cheerful. He has many friends and is thriving under the care of loving teachers. With shy smiles and giggles, he is learning the English alphabet, basic math concepts, colors, and shapes.

Retesh’s parents, who earn a small income making and selling handicrafts, are grateful. They said, “We are so happy with this Good Shepherd School. Retesh can’t wait to go to school each day, and we know he is getting a good education as well as being treated with love.”

Your gifts to education mean the world to families like Retesh’s. Thank you so much for making a difference!

Now through the end of 2017, your gifts will go twice as far, because all education gifts are matched by a generous donor. There has never been a better time to give!
