About me

Hello Friends,

This is my 7th year participating in sevathon/yogathon/marathon and I am excited.

This year owing to the pandemic the in-person event is canceled. But I will be running a 10K run to celebrate the spirit of the event and as a thank you to all the contributors.

Why I am Participating:

I am participating this year to raise funds to sponsor the education of 35 children (35 x 240$ = 8400$) in rural India through a non-profit educational initiative called Isha Vidhya. For the past 6 years, I have had the privilege of raising funds to sponsor the education of 10-30 kids and the opportunity to sponsor the education of 4 kids myself through this initiative. I have been really impressed as I got to be continuously involved and see the child's progress throughout the year. I got periodic updates about the progress of the children including their mark sheets. It made me see the impact Isha Vidhya was having on the lives of these children. Getting to see how a small amount of money for us could make a big difference in the lives of these children has motivated me to take this up.

Why your support this year is important!

Especially this year owing to COVID-19, the funds have severely been depleted and the organization is finding it hard to support the children and teachers during this challenging time. At a time like this, your support would go a long way in helping the kids and teachers.

I hope you can join me in this campaign and help to support the cause in whichever way possible however small or big your contribution may be. Every penny counts.

Thank you for your time and support.

Isha Vidhya is a non-profit education initiative committed to providing high-quality education to underprivileged children in rural India. They currently run 9 schools and the schools presently cater to more than 7158 students from nearby villages, with 61% of students on free education through donations from their scholarship program. This has had a tremendous impact on the villages in the surrounding locality. It has created the possibility for 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.
