About me

A BIG hello to everyone out there,

I am excited to share that I'll be participating in Sevathon( a walk/run/yoga intiative in the spirit of Seva) for the 5th year to raise funds for the education of under-previleged kids through a non-profit rural educational intiative, Isha Vidhya.

I got to know about Isha Vidhya about 8 years ago and ever since, I've been following them and their progress closely. I began my journey by sponsoring 2 kids in 2009, 1 kid in 2010 and 4 kids in 2011 with the help of my friends. I have been sponsoring 4-6 kids every year ever since. The joy of giving and the transformation education is bringing in the lives of these rural kids, has motivated me to do the yogathon/walkathon/ this year to support and raise funds to sponsor 20 kids. I'll be running 10K this year along with my 2 kids. I receive annual reports and the kids progress reports and letters. It has been a very enriching experience for me and my family to be able to brighten up those little kids lives in some way.

 

What am I doing :

I am running 10K this year to raise funds to sponsor the education of 20 children (20 x 240$ = 4800$) in rural India through a non-profit educational initiative called Isha Vidhya. A small amount of money could make a huge difference in the lives of these children, by not just bringing empowerment to these children, but to their families as well.

It would be lovely if you can join me for the walk or help to support the cause in whichever way possible however small or big your contribution may be. Every penny counts.

Appreciate your time and support.

Hema.

About Isha Vidhya:Isha Vidhya is a non-profit education initiative committed to providing high quality education to under privileged children in rural India. They currently run 9 schools and the schools presently cater to more than 5820 students from nearby villages, with approximately 58% of students on free education through donations from their scholarship program. This has had a tremendous impact in the villages in the surrounding locality. It 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.You can find more information about Isha Vidhya athttp://www.ishavidhya.org/
