Indranil (Indi) is running marathons to raise money for education of girls.
About the Project
Each year some girls will be selected and financial support will be given so that they can continue their higher studies. The girls will be supported till they get a job. The selected girls would be those who would complete their class 10th.
Right now I have decided to support the girls from the rural mountain school Nirpeksha Abhilasha.- "one's heart's desire, without any expectation" - was born out of the deep desire to bring the light of good education to the rural children, who are deprived of it, due to financial or other constraints .The School was established on 14th June 2001 with 17 children by Ms Madhu Khati. The school provides free education, as well as books and uniforms, to the village children, and is affiliated to the Uttarakhand Board of Education.
This school is located in Almora, Uttrakhand, India.
Here is the profile of 5 girls those who would be supported. In the photographs, the girls are wearing the school uniform.
