For last 2 years, I have been a founding member of the United States campaign for an International Non-Profit Organization called KITAAB (means book in Urdu) that promotes the love of reading among underprivileged children.
I believe that every child in this world should have access to storybooks to enhance their learning and bury their head into a land of mystery, joy, humor, suspense, and have fun whenever they want!
We have collected and distributed over 4500 books from book drives and help from friends and families.
I am going to India in December and have a personal goal of collecting 1000 used children’s books and $3000 so that we can cover expenses for Kitaab volunteers to take these books to needy kids all over the country.
PLEASE HELP AS I ONLY HAVE 2 WEEKS TO COLLECT THESE FUNDS.
Thank you all so much for your help! – Rohan Handa

Project Wrap-In is Coming on December 6th, 2017!
Each student is asked to bring in one new, unused gift ($5- $15) to store in homeroom the week of December 4. Students in grades 9th-12th may instead buy a gift for a young child of any age with their own gender in mind if they would like; however, keep in mind
that children benefiting from this outreach opportunity may also be teens. Additionally, students are asked to bring wrapping materials like wrapping paper, TAPE, ribbon, bows, etc. Our hope for all students is:
- Bring in one present ($5-$15).
- Contribute wrapping paper and/or other wrapping supplies. Extra tape is very helpful!
- Bring a giving and positive attitude.
- Have fun!
We are looking forward to making a difference in the lives of many children! If
you have any questions please feel free to contact the following:
