From Service to Passion

Last year JI, a high school student, was looking for a project that would earn her graduation community service credit. So she began helping Interra with its free school in Nepal. A lot of the work was mundane and clerical, but as she began to learn about the children, their poor families and how education changes their future, her ties to Interra strengthened--She now sees herself volunteering at Interra through college and beyond.

For JI giving is more than just doing clerical stuff for the school. She brainstorms with her mother to find creative ways to raise funds. Her fabulous idea this Christmas was to offer gift-wrapping services to busy executives.
