The Gift of education is probably the greatest gift one can give to a child and to society. And if you are reading this, I guess you already realize how important that gift was in our lives! Unfortunately, there are so many who are deprived of education due to poverty and lack of bare minimum facilities. The only factor stopping millions of children to even dream of life out of poverty is lack of education.
Just feeling sorry about a situation has never helped. So we need to act, and we need to act right now. Because more we wait, more children we lose to misery. I am playing my part in this by running half marathon (13 miles/21 km) for raising funds for education of the underprivileged. Please support me in this endeavor by donating here. Asha for Education is a fully volunteer run non-profit organization. All the donations actually go towards the cause with less than 2% overhead. It has been consistently rated one of the best philanthropic organizations by many independent charity watchdog organizations due to its transparency. All donations made to Asha are fully tax deductible in the US. No donation is a small donation. Every dollar, every rupee counts!
