In July 2019, nine members of Share & Care Kids4Kids traveled to Mumbai, India to spend time with students enrolled in our Educate 2 Success program.

Kids4Kids, a group composed of ambitious and philanthropic teenagers, aims to raise funds and participate in events that improve education for marginalized kids in India. The children they're helping are beneficiaries of E2S, which provides educational resources, counseling, and career guidance for at-risk students.

During their trip overseas, the nine teens (Krish Sheth, Arnav Choudry, Parth Mehta, Akshay Mehta, Vidit Shah, Arya Shah, Rishin Shah, Neil Parikh, and Yash Mehta) taught children in a municipal school and volunteered in an after-school center designed to keep kids off the streets.



Reflections from a Trip Across the Atlantic

It was a rewarding and enlightening trip, Arnav reflects. "The best part was the reciprocation; it wasn’t simply us going and teaching, it was a mutual experience. We shared our knowledge of English and technology and they taught us Hindi as well as local games, such as Langdi and Kho Kho."

Below, read more about what the group had to say about the experience — in their own words.

"Traveling and experiencing an environment that is way different than the one in America gives us a valuable perspective of the big world we live in. Sharing our knowledge about English and computers will help the children in certain aspects of life that are very important. While we teach those skills to them, we obtain certain factors of life, such as companionship, respect, trust, joy, and Hindi from them!" — Akshay Mehta, Aarya Shah, and Neil Parikh

"Seeing these kids so eager to learn and ready to build friendships was absolutely amazing. The memories I have made here will change me for the better." — Yash Mehta

"We chose to travel to India to volunteer because we saw how other people were struggling to get an education. We believe that everyone deserves an equal opportunity, and so we came to India to provide them with the education that they lack." — Krish Sheth, Parth Mehta, and Rishin Shah





We're proud of our students for their commitment to helping children across the world. In India, 40% of students drop out of school before eighth grade, which is why programs like Educate 2 Success are so important. By receiving support to stay in school, students from marginalized communities have the opportunity to escape the cycles of poverty that have oppressed their families for generations.
