Before the Carnevali Foundation sponsorship, our school called Yellamabanda, consisted of 2 small rooms for 150 students. Those who didn’t fit sat in the dirt under a grass tarp. Today, this “Flagship School,” located in Hyderabad, India, accommodates 900 students on a large campus with multiple two-story buildings, gender-based toilets, 2 kitchens, a Reverse Osmosis system for potable water and a complete library. Commencing in 2004, the Carnevali Foundation continued to build schools in India, and recently in Nepal and Ethiopia, to now serve over 4,000 students.
