“Because that’s the one thing people can’t take away from you, is your education. And it is worth the investment” – Michelle Obama
I have always been passionate about the education cause for I truly believe it can make all the difference to one’s life. I have been personally supporting child education in the local areas and contributing to the overall cause as much as I can. And now, I am seeking the support of family, friends, community, and anybody who believes that education can make a difference.
This year, I have decided to take part in an international marathon hosted by Asha for Education, a non-profit organization with a primary focus on basic education in India. As part of the marathon, I have chosen to raise funds for project Aralu-PPC which supports pre-primary care (PPC) center for children (age 6 and under) in a small village in the state of Karnataka in India. The primary occupation of parents of the children who attend the pre-primary care center are laborers, whose sites of work are mostly unsafe for young children. Aralu-PPC provides a safe environment and a platform for basic education for these children, who would otherwise be neglected while their parents are at work. For more information about the project, please visit https://chicago.ashanet.org/project/?pid=18
Goal: I aim to raise USD 2500 before 30 June 2019
