On March 15th, 2020, I will be running the NYC Half (my first half marathon!) on team Pratham USA. Your support in the form of a donation to Pratham USA would mean a lot to me. My goal is to raise $1,000.
WHY THE NYC HALF?
Running a race has always seemed impossible to me. However in 2018, I signed up for a 10K on whim and finished the race alongside some close friends. It's now my goal to further challenge myself and train for a half marathon.
WHY SUPPORT EDUCATION AND PRATHAM?
In 2010, I volunteered in Mumbai, India, at a school for children from low-income communities, teaching English, math, and current events. This experience significantly impacted my worldview, and empowering underprivileged children has become a cause I hold dear.
Pratham is one of India's largest non-governmental education organizations, whose mission is just that, "Every child in school and learning well."
Pratham was founded in 1995 on the belief that every child has the right to a quality education. Since then, Pratham has affected the lives of more than 75 million underprivileged children in India.
It uses low-cost learning methods and works in collaboration with India’s governments, communities, educators, and industries to improve learning outcomes and influence education policy.
Pratham USA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a four-star rating from Charity Navigator and over 88% of funds raised by Pratham USA go directly to support thier programs in India, so you can be sure that your contribution will make a real and lasting difference.
