Our focus in India is on improving educational opportunities for young girls. The success of the SOAR program keeps us motivated and inspired to continue our work in this region.
The SOAR program in India has approximately 100 girls between the ages of 11 to 14 in its 11-month accelerated program. The learning model incorporates a social learning model incorporating self, family, and society to help girls adapt to the social environment. In 2020, AFO joined CARE in the SOAR program to support and expand this program to continue the growth and empowerment of girls.
Since the program started in India, CARE reported that 20% of the girls who attended the program went to college, and 10% of girls in the program became entrepreneurs. The program has shown proven success, with 99% completing fifth grade-level competencies and 95% of those girls graduating to sixth grade. The accelerated program in India incorporates a social learning package that builds confidence and equips girls with social skills.
- India has the second largest population in the world, with an estimated 1.3 billion.
- It has the highest population living below the poverty line.
- Most girls in rural areas do housework and often never attend school.

All For One continues to be passionate about building a strong community of volunteers that complements the countless efforts of our organization. Active volunteers’ enthusiasm encourages all of us. We believe that each of our stories is critical to the legacy and impact that we have in the world. Each actively involved volunteer will share a short story of themselves and their purpose for joining the mission.
Volunteers select an area of interest and write a short story of themselves, including what motivates and inspires them, what activities fill their day, their values, and how they can add to All For One’s culture.
Loving what you do is the epitome of fulfillment. An ideal volunteer embodies a love of selfless giving of themselves, their talents, and their time. Volunteering is a generous and noble feat where one offers time, self, skills, and talents freely. Giving selflessly is a powerful attribute to give back to the community. The volunteer questionnaire assists in identifying and developing characteristics ideal for being a volunteer for All For One.
