PayPal GIVES - Girls In Technology  

Girls, mostly in the lower economic strata, are forced to quit school after 12th standard. They need more exposure and motivation, to build confidence and make strides in continuing education. This is an initiative to expose young minds to the world of technology! Participants: Thirty 9th grade students from our neighborhood government school. From inspiring talks, technology, entertainment, to goodie bags, we want to make this day etched in the memories of these young girls, and motivate them to dream big, through this initiative.
