US bases Indian students helping people in Jharkhand

Ranchi: Shresht Rawat is a student of Upper St. Clair High School, Pittsburgh, PA, USA, studying in 10th Grade and enrolled in International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP). For his MYP Project, last year Shresht decided to help people from rural villages in India by donating money that will be used to buy food packets and some daily needs items.

Since then Shresht has been working a few hours over the weekends and also reaching out to people for donations. Shresht managed to collect 690 USD which translates to INR 58650 (Indian Rupees). This amount was good enough to distribute 100 mosquito nets and food packets to the families of the village Nagri Chama in the Jharkhand state of India.

Shresht took help from his grandmother, Mangla Kumari, who lives in India, and helped Shresht to coordinate with an international organization called Amurtel. Amurtel works on improving the quality of life for people worldwide. For more information on Amurtel visit their website at project/india/.
