About me

I am excited to share that I'll be participating in Sevathon( a walk/run/yoga intiative in the spirit of Seva) again! This is to raise funds for the education of under-previleged kids through a non-profit rural educational intiative, Isha Vidhya. I would like to sponsor education for 10 children this year (10 x $240), aiming to raise the funds by Surya Namaskars as a part of Sevathon

It will be amazing if you could join me in this by being a part of Sevathon or help in contributing to this cause. 

Educating Rural India 
 
The majority of India’s population lives below minimum subsistence levels, surviving on an income of less than US $2 per day.  
Government schools that impart very basic education in local languages, they lack sufficient skills to be employed. Majority of the rural children end up accompanying their parents to work and lead very bleak lives.
 
Why Isha Vidhya?
 
Isha Vidhya provides a scalable approach to providing quality education within the limitations present in underdeveloped, rural communities. Isha Vidhya functions on a grass-roots level, relying on community involvement and the support of innumerable volunteers and donors.This has created the possibility for the rural children to pursue higher education or find gainful employment and thus build a strong foundation for the future of these children and alleviate themselves out of poverty.

61% of 
 Isha Vidhya children are supported through scholarship. You can support them in through the following donation amounts
 
ISHA VIDHYA Goals for 2018

Our goal is to continue to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged rural children. With the help of donation from supporters like you, we hope to see more improvements in their lives.

In 2018, our fund raising goals will be to support building 2 new Isha Vidhya schools in Tamilnadu and providing scholarships for the students in the existing schools. To this end we will concentrate on the following:

  • Renew scholarships for all children supported through Sevathon
  • "Help us build 10 classrooms in 2 of our new rural schools." Construction and furnishing of each classroom costs INR 7,50,000. ($ 12,500). Each year, 40 students will benefit using the classroom. In 10 years you would have contributed to educating 400 children who otherwise have little access to quality education. To sponsor 1 sqft of classroom space please donate $20.  Those contributing $2000 (ie. for 100 sqft) or more will be named on the 'Honor Board' in front of the classroom."
  • "Help us build compound walls in 8 of our rural schools." To sponsor 1 sqft of construction please donate $20.
