We are delighted to report back on another successful summer, cementing the strong partnership between the University of Warwick and the Laksh Foundation NGO.
Sixteen student volunteers from across the University travelled to India this summer to live and work at Laksh and made a significant contribution to the lives of over 1000 young learners in rural communities in India.
"The continued involvement of the Warwick Volunteers helps us to improve. They have made me comfortable in my teaching, my confidence has improved and their patient help has made feel that I have the ability to be a good teacher." Mustafa, teacher

We are delighted to report back on another successful summer of activity in rural India.
Twelve student volunteers from across the University travelled to India this summer to live and work at the Laksh Foundation, an NGO in Haryana, India.
The University’s Outstanding Student Contribution Award (OSCA) aims to recognise exceptional student achievements and is a celebration of individuals whose efforts have made a real difference and a significant contribution to a community.
We are pleased to announce that OSCA has been awarded to Hasan Suida, a former volunteer and associate of the Warwick Laksh Programme. Hasan, who recently was awarded his degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, has undertaken two placements in India at the Laksh Foundation on behalf of the programme.
The Warwick Laksh Programme has received a pledge for a donation of £2,000 from the Sri Guru Ravidass Sabha community organisation in Bedford.
