Give in to Hope Day 8: Yash Gupta

Like so many kids, Yash Gupta wears glasses. One day, his glasses broke, and he had to go to school without them. He realized that it was impossible for him to learn without being able to see, and he wondered how many kids around the world were struggling to learn because they didn’t have access to glasses. Rather than just keep wondering, he decided to start collecting glasses and connecting these glasses with kids who needed them. His small project turned into a big deal, helping over 20,000 kids in 5 countries see better and find more success in school!

To learn more about Yash Gupta, and his organization Sight Learning:

Humans have 5 senses–sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch. Which of these would be the hardest for you to live without? How would being without one of those senses affect your learning at school?

Closing prayer: Dear God, please let us look at others, even those who are different, and SEE that we have more in common than we think. Amen.
