What is Nanhi Kali?
Nanhi Kali is a project of the Mahindra Foundation of India, supporting education for underprivileged girls. Recognizing that the education of women and girls is beneficial to all societies worldwide, a group of Syracuse University students runs the Nanhi Kali Syracuse University chapter.
The Hindi name, Nanhi Kali (NAHN-hee Kah-LEE) means “little flower bud”. Nanhi Kali raises funds to sponsor uniforms, school supplies and tuition costs for girls in India who are otherwise unable to attend elementary or middle school on their own.
