#ILSCGIVES – Making positive changes
As part of ILSC’s mission to provide transformation living and learning experiences to students around the world, we have introduced a new global initiative, entitled #ILSCGIVES, to ensure this goal reaches students far and wide. For every registration ILSC and Greystone College receive, we are committed to donate $1 to the Learn to Earn program, so that more women like Deepika, Sadhna and Aarti can have the opportunities to do great things. After this cohort has completed their program, over 100 women graduate from the LTE program – and with the exciting #ILSCGIVES initiative, the potential is endless.
