Help raise funds for schools in rural India.
My name is Abhinav and I am a rising junior in Cary, North Carolina. I have had the privelege of a stable education since I was born, but there are many that don't have the opportunities that those like me often take for granted.
For underpriveleged children, such as those in rural India, access to an education can be life changing.
In remote areas, education is invaluable. It can drastically improve standards of health by teaching families how to optimize farming, prevent malnutrition, and avoid the spread of disease. Education also combats gender inequality by empowering women to seek employment and decreasing the rate of child marriage.
Ekal Vidyalaya is an organization that is an incredible opportunity to sponsor the education of these children -- for just a dollar a day, you can support a school that teaches 30 students. Ekal has established over 100,000 schools with over 2.7 million students.
Even a small donation can go a long way, but those who can't donate can still contribute by spreading awareness through social media or informing friends and family.
Thank you for your time.
