My name is Sanjay Datta and i call Southern California home for last two decades, with my family based in India we support many initiatives focused on educational needs of underprivileged childrens.
Southern California is home to large Indian Americans working in Tech and releated sector and are part of various community based orginisations [NGOs], My wife is a Director in one such NGO working on lingustic education for Indian Americans, When it comes to supporting education in India most of us are hindered by lack of awareness and existence of organisation like Ekal Vidyalaya and channel funds through either Govt entities or private india based NGOs. There are couple of problems with this approach.
Please consider donating a small amount monthly, the amount can be as small as $10 which would be equal to a trip to Starbucks or to a fastfood joint. If you are part of a organisation please consider following oppurtunities which your employer may support.
This campaign will fund education in Indian tribal areas where Govt agencies have not been able to make inroads. Tribals or Adivasi constitute nearly 9 percent of Indian population but have been lagging in education and consequently economically. Schooling will help tribals secure political and economical benefits and retain their cultural heritage.
Science is turning to Amazons of the world for herbs and natural cure , if Indian Adivasis are schooled in their natural habitat generational knowledge which they have inherited from their forefothers will be retained while enabling them to implement policies more in aligned to co habitation with forests.
Please consider sharing this campaign via WhatsApp, LinkedIn and facebook. your post will enable your friends discover this worthy initiative and they will feel get a feeling of accomplishments when they will do their part.
