Help educate children in rural India! $365 runs a school in remote Indian villages for 1 year

Short Summary

 

Hi! I'm Meera Kochhar, a high school senior in Orlando, FL. I have long wanted to give back to those in India, but didn't know how to directly help my people while living in the U.S.. Through Ekal Vidyala, I have found how those like me in the United States can effectively give back to the Indian community that can benefit from our smallest actions. Till date, Ekal has educated 13,920,674 girls and 13,940,173 boys in 102,753 schools. To help educate children in rural and tribal India, I ask you join me this Diwali to spread joy as we invest in the future generation and give back to where we came from. Help spread light and knowledge this Diwali with a simple act that can alter children's lives. 

What You Need & What You Get

Any donations are appreciated! I hope to raise at least $1,095 USD to fund at least 3 Ekal schools for an entire year. There is no cap on what we can raise this Diwali. So, the more the merrier!

*$365 funds 1 school in a rural village in India for 1 whole year. In other words, donating $1 a day for a year funds a school for an entire year!

The Impact

Each Ekal school educates around 30 children in villages in India. By raising at least $1,095 USD to fund at least 3 Ekal schools for an entire year, you can help educate over 90 children. This education will benefit far more than just the child since one person's knowledge can help and inspire several others. Your small Diwali contribution can reap benefits for generations!
