As an international student in the USA, I had the opportunity to educate myself here, take a variety of courses and certifications. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends. But before starting the next chapter of my life, I would love to pay it forward to those in need. Running a marathon is my personal challenge for this coming year. I decided to run with Team Asha and fundraise for the Gramya Sansthan Project. The project helps with the education and the main focus of the organization is awareness regarding violence against women, human rights, and child development. Everyone should have the right to education and opportunity to make a good living.
How your funds will be used? Your funds will go to the project “Gramya Sansthan”, which is supported by Asha for Education, Chicago chapter. This project provides free education to 575 underprivileged kids in a village in Uttar Pradesh, India. The annual cost to educate one child is $60.
Goal: I hope to raise $6000 to support the education of 100 kids for a year. The detailed budget is attached at the end for your discretion.
