BENEFITING: Children International
EVENT DATE: Jul 12, 2015
The Children International Bay Area Chapter is delighted to be a charity partner of Sevathon! Sevathon is fun filled family friendly event will include cultural activities, music & dance, nonprofit booths, yoga and a walkathon (½ marathon, 10k or 5k)!
The Bay Area Chapter is encouraging runners and walkers to fundraise for the construction of a new community center in Shahabad Dairy, India! This Children International facility will provide children and youth with services and benefits necessary to bring long lasting change and a brighter future to the entire Shahabad community.
Each runner that raises $1000 will have the opportunity to have their name on a dedication plaque at the center in Shahabad Dairy.
Shahabad Dairy is home to more than 21,000 families crammed into six blocks in the northwest part of Delhi, near Rohini. Most of the residents have lived in the area for the past 25 years after being evicted from government and private lands in Delhi. The area is characterized by poor infrastructure and crowded living conditions. The resettlement colony lacks basic amenities, facilities, and resources for their children. Children International, in partnership with you, can help!
For more than 75 years, Children International has been providing critical assistance to children and families struggling in terrible poverty. Our centrally located community centers, from which our dedicated in-country staffs operate, provide resources, programs and services that allow us to reduce the burden of poverty on impoverished children and youth, invest in their potential and provide them with opportunities to grow up healthy, educated and prepared to succeed and contribute to society.
Children International’s community centers are the heart of the communities where they reside, offering life-changing benefits to children in a clean, safe environment.
The centers make it easier to serve sponsored children because they concentrate our programs and services into one central location. Medical and dental clinics, a library, computer center, meeting spaces and family services all reside in one easily accessible facility.
Thank you for helping.
