PL Gupta told us about the Ekal education movement in India.  Ekal provides one room education for children in rural and tribal India in more than 100 thousand villages and provides basic education to three million children.  For $500 30 children are provided with a teacher, a blackboard and some supplies for a year.  Ekal education is the first step out of poverty and on to the regular education system.  Our club has supported Ekal and will continue its support.
