Congratulations to Geetha for her awesome grades!

Geetha is a second year engineering student majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Geetha is motivated, driven and nothing will stop her from becoming a successful professional!  Which is why Nyrvaana is supporting her education by helping her with the tuition fees.  The combined income of her parents is less than the annual tuition, her family does not own a computer which is needed by every student and she is a first generation engineering student ... but none of these challenges stopped Geetha from being accepted to a good engineering school and securing top grades!  Geetha stays back in college after hours,...

Srija receives an empowering gift this pongal

When we first heard about Srija, the daughter of a woman who wants nothing more than a college education for her daughter, we were all impressed by the mother!

A weavers tale

A weavers tale

A weavers tale is told through the fabric they weave. Every thread holds a story, every border a secret and every flower shows the pride of workmanship.  And the best part is that the story is forever - the beauty of woven fabric can be enjoyed again and again!  After visiting the weaver's village in Uppada in South India, I know I will never throw away anything made of hand woven fabric. I went inside the tiny houses of the weavers and ran my hand over their old, wooden looms that took up the entire front room. The man of...

Nyrvaana sponsors care pouches for cancer patients

Our colorful little pouches are hopefully going to bring a smile to the faces of 60 women undergoing cancer treatment.  The pouches were lovingly stuffed with a packet of mints, aloe cream and a lip balm - a little something to help the women feel a little better right after treatment.  All of us know someone who either suffers from cancer or has lost a loved one to cancer. While researchers and medical professionals are doing their part to tackle cancer, let's all do what we can to help and support patients and their families.
