As a 7th grade student in 2017, Tanya Keskar launched Realize to Act to address the limitations of  the education system and focus on increasing opportunity for students in underserved communities. Realize to Act worked with an organization that works to break the cycle of poverty in India through education, with homeless shelters around Greater-Cincinnati, and these relationships have led us to focus on supporting students and schools. We now provide hundreds of backpacks and school supplies every year to students in underserved communities. We are so grateful for the community that has formed around our work, and our honored to be able to create real change in our local communities.

Students are not just statistics
