A celebration of friendship and the spirit of cricket, Curry Cup is Boston Gymkhana’s signature cricket tournament as part of which it hosts various cricket teams, friends and families, elders, children and coworkers. Now in its fourth year it provides us an opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the company of our friends and family. A time to ponder and appreciate the patience of our friends, wives and family, who allow us to play this game that we love so much.

Nanhi Kali has recently launched the first ever donation based film series on their website www.agirlstory.org. A Girl Story is a unique donation-based film that brings to life the experience of many underprivileged girls in India. The story is told through the eyes of Tarla, a young underprivileged girl who simply wants to go to school and receive an education. The websites goal is to raise awareness about the challenges that girls like Tarla face, and to drive donations for Project Nanhi Kali.
It was in 2009 that Nanhi Kali was selected as one of the 6 laureates by Qatar Foundation for the WISE Summit (World Innovation Summit for Education) held in Doha. Qatar Foundation has recently announced the dates for the 2010 summit in December in Doha. In addition to celebrating Award winners each year, the WISE team has been keenly following the projects of past laureates. With the intention to showcase Nanhi Kali’s achievements they have produced a web documentary which will be shown at the summit.
Our previous conception of the NGO Naandi foundation based in Hyderabad (with whom we would be interning) was that it is a charity which helps impoverished young girls achieve their right to an education. However, the sheer magnitude and the scale of the social enterprise was evident from the CEO Manoj Kumars’s ambition to take over the responsibility of government education within five years. Our main focus throughout the 15 day internship was on Project Nanhi Kali – for the girl child.
