Pia and Maira are half Indian and half Colombian, and they are lucky to have been born in the United States. When Pia turned 1, we asked for donations for the Shadhika Project which empowers at-risk girls in India so that they can realize their aspirations for a better future. We would like to continue with that tradition so we setup this new fundraising campaign for the girls' birthdays this year.
By investing in the education, empowerment and economic self-sufficiency of girls and supporting programs that teach boys to respect women and girls, Shadhika works to combat gender inequality and break the cycle of poverty in India.
A donation of:
$1,200 covers all costs for a girl to attend college for a year
$500 covers all the costs for a girl to attend secondary school for one year
$200 funds one year of after school tutoring
$150 will pay for meals and transportation to/from school for one year
$100 underwrites a year’s books and school supplies
$50 will supply a girl with school uniforms for a year
