Parag Doshi


I was lucky to get good education in India, which has allowed me to succeed in USA. It is time to return the favour and do something good for the underprivileged children in India, who are not so lucky. Improving education of these kids will improve the future of the biggest democracy in the world. It will also help reduce the inequality, poverty and improve health metrics in India, since education is directly linked to all of that.

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.
