PURE Youth was founded by Hema Kanthamaneni when her daughter visited India and saw the terrible situations of the schools and students. Since then, PURE Youth has created about 15 branches nationwide that are dedicated to helping these kids in terrible schooling conditions.

Clarksburg PURE Youth

The Clarksburg branch of PURE Youth is lead and run by a group of middle and high school students who have already worked hard to raised over $700 in 2019 to help lift up children in impoverished situations. Their current goal is to provide street children with housing, food and a proper education in Tanuku, in West Godavari, so their financial situation doesn’t stop them from achieving their goals.

how the proceeds will help

PURE Youth hopes to not only raise more money to help kids who are not as fortunate as the many local students, but to also spread awareness about bringing educational opportunities closer to underprivileged children.
