To build up on our efforts in Saur, we initiated an education fellowship in the village.
Our aim? Two pronged. We wanted to bring learning and education to the doorsteps of Saur. We also wanted tourism to make its foray into the community and lend to the livelihood of the village.
Our first fellowship cohort had two fellows, who commenced a six month long journey to start bringing our plans to fruition.
After a nationwide screening process we found two soulmates for Saur, Revati Kulkarni and Lipi Ramola.
Under the fellowship, they taught Computers and English to the children and young adults of Saur. Along with the education, the girls also worked on the tourism leg of Due North (a homestay in the village, that is working to restore the village and its tourism) and the sustainability of the village.
