Project Nandi aims to prevent Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian students from being left behind by distance learning during the pandemic. We will provide technical support, laptops,  broadband assistance  to families to promote educational equity and improve learning outcomes for students.  25,000 children in Minnesota are currently without the equipment & internet needed to attend school safely.


We deliver laptops, desks, food, & resources for families that have lost hope.   An overwhelming number of children of color in the Twin Cities failed their entire school year as a result of the shift to online classes, and many of these students are showing signs of PTSD from the trauma they experienced during the Minneapolis Uprising, as well as the trauma from the pandemic as a whole.  Although schools are now re-opening, several districts have closed again due to Covid. New variants, possibly unresponsive to the vaccine, have been found in  our state.

 Education is a basic human right under the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and currently, these students’ rights are being infringed upon. That’s where Project Nandi comes in: each child deserves a decent laptop and tech support to keep them online. We hope to fundraise enough to create in-home, customized learning spaces and tech support for four hundred children this school year.
