Sendhil appeared at the 4th Annual Nanubhai Education Foundation Gala in New York City on April 27th at the Angel Orensanz Foundation for Contemporary Art with over 400 guests. The event raised a record $55,000 from ticket sales, an auction and raffle prizes to fund the Foundation’s fellowship program that partners experienced American educators with rural Indian high schools to mentor and inspire local teachers to become excellent educators.
Nanubhai Education Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit dedicated to providing equal access to India’s rapidly growing economic opportunities to the students of India’s rural public high schools through education. Since 2004, Nanubhai has been transforming access to quality education. They have integrated an innovative program of English and information technology education into the underfunded public schools in the Indian state of Gujarat. The organization was founded on the premise that all Indian students deserve equal access to quality education.
