Girls Education Projects


AMUAA of Greater Chicago believes that Educating Girls benefits Generations.


Education plays a vital role in the progress of any society. Primary and secondary education sparks the interest in children for knowledge. Education helps children to become better architects of tomorrow by excelling at whatever profession they choose, such as becoming leaders, doctors, engineers, scientists, lawyers, bankers and teachers etc. 
A mother’s education is essential for nurturing children. A mother is the first and the foremost teacher of a child. Education enables a mother to find critically important tools and techniques that she needs to raise her child. Therefore, education of girls, mothers of tomorrow, is of utmost importance.


AMUAA-GC is committed to supporting Girl’s education projects and sponsoring needy students in India. Please visit Our Projects page to learn more about our completed and on-going projects.
