It has always been my dream to help improve the education system for underprivileged children and children in rural areas, but I was never sure of how to achieve this goal. When I heard about the excellent work that ASHA has been doing for the education of underprivileged children in India, and how I could make an immediate contribution, I got very excited! Even though I have harbored a desire to run a marathon for a long time, it never seemed motivating enough for me to take up the challenge until now. Raising funds for Asha for Education is an amazing way to achieve both my goals, which require a lot of determination and stamina and most of all, your support.

How your funds will be used? Your funds will go to the project “Navjyoti Swawalamban Seva Sansthan” school, which is supported by Asha for Education, Chicago chapter. This project school provides free education to approximately 250 underprivileged kids in Nagepur village in Uttar Pradesh, India. The annual cost to educate one child is $54.

Goal: I hope to raise funds to educate 100 kids for a year, which is $5,400. The detailed budget is attached at the end for your discretion.
