Nearly two thirds of India’s population lives in poverty. Education is free for children through the age 14, (8th grade), but public schools are academically low performance schools and literacy remains low. English language is only taught in private high schools and while unemployment hovers around 25%, the better paying jobs are for those who speak English.
AMBW initially began supporting primary school level students, but has increasingly moved towards funding education of college level students. Among the graduates of AMBW there have been nurses, teachers, computer engineers, and commerce majors – all now working as professionals at well-paying jobs.
