Hello Friends, I am Nikhiya Shamsher, a 10th Grade student from Greenwood High School. Yearn to Learn is our second project. Our first project - Bags, Books and Blessings aims to collect basic tools like bags, books, water bottles, uniforms and donates them to schools that need them. The popularity and success of Bags, Books and Blessings helped us collect donations from many individuals and organizations. And this is what motivated our team to start our second project Yearn to Learn.
One of the beautiful things about science is that it brings together talented children and inspires them to use their innovative minds to bring about a change in our world. Unfortunately conditions are not the same in every school. Some schools that provide free education run on a limited budget. As a result essential equipments like a Science or a Math Lab are often inaccessible to these schools. Children from these schools have no access to experimental learning and miss out on a very important aspect of understanding science.
As part of an ongoing effort to further the education of underprivileged children in the field of Science & Math and with a desire to put these donations to good use, Yearn to Learn has taken up the task to set up Science and Math Labs in schools and primary colleges that do not have them.
We thank all our donors who believed in our cause and donated generously, without which none of this would have been possible.
"All of us do not have equal talents. But all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talents."

Yearn to Learn is an initiative by Nikhiya Shamsher that aims to set up Science and Math Labs in Schools and Colleges, for the benefit of the less privileged students. Apart from setting up the labs and re-stocking them regularly, Yearn to Learn constantly strives to improve the quality of education by encouraging students to discover, create and innovate.
Yearn to Learn has so far set up 65 Laboratories of Science and Math in 17 schools and more are in the pipeline.
