Education is the foundation for a better future
Thank you very much for showing interest into my Ekal Vidyalaya Fundraising Campaign.
As some of you know, I am performing my Bharatanatyam Arangetram on August 17, 2019 at Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. To support Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation, I have set a goal to raise $1095, to support 3 schools, but I would be thrilled if we can raise more!
A majority of students in India still live in villages and even though number of rural students enrolling into schools is improving, the level of eduction in these schools, whether reading or math, is declining. Many Rural schools lack the infrastructure for the classrooms including safe buildings, proper text books and learning materials in schools or qualified and committed teachers. Due to lack of classroom space or teaching staff, often various grades are combined in one classroom. Many villages do not have schools, so many studens have travel to nearby villages to get an education. Poverty is a setback because many parents cannot afford textbooks, high student to teacher ratio further declines their interest to go to school.
For a dollar a day of donation, a year worth of education can be provided for one village. If we can reach our goal, it will provide education to 3 villages for one year paving the way for many students for a better future.
Please share the Fundraising details with your friend and family so together we can make a difference.
Thank you very much for your support.
