In Kim's own words...

In October 2006 I traveled to Southern India to help restore wells that had been destroyed in the Tsunami, and to assist with a Welfare school in Bodhgaya.  The wells have been successfully built, and we now continue to support 4 young men in Bodhgaya as they work their way toward University. You can HELP!! To see my personal account of both projects, go to www.kims-india-blog.blogspot.com.

As it turns out, the men of AWED (the water organization) built the first 5 wells UNDER budget, meaning we are already ahead in the construction of "Phase II" wells!  As you may recall there are a total of 19 wells to be built.  We needed to confirm their capacity to get the job done by sponsoring only the first 5.  They did it!  And now, our other projects are expanding as well! (no pun intended) 

scholarship boysThe "boys" in Bodhgaya (Northern Indian) that we are sponsoring in school are doing very, very well.  Cedric (of Swiss Knight) stayed in their village for almost 2 months to help get them settled into their new routine of school, study, homework and focus.  The boys called me for my birthday and I was AMAZED at their already greatly improved English!  And although Anup is the youngest of the group, and struggles with his English, Cedric has discovered that he is conversational in JAPANESE as well!!  Cedric is confident that these boys are up to the challenge of breaking out of their castes and becoming successful and educated.  We are very excited.
