    This fundraiser will benefit

Bihar has the lowest female literacy rate and the highest female infanticide rate in the country.  This is primarily a social issue as females are considered inferior and families discourage girls from studying.  

Hon'ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi had launched a "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao" campaign in select states to turnaround the situation and encourages parents/society to nurture and educate the girl child.  

In May 2016, I, in my official capacity as a representative of People Combine Education Group had rolled out tuition fee waivers for Bihar Girls.  These fee waivers were announced by prominent BJP leaders at a Press Conference held at Hotel Gayathri Palace, Muzaffarpur, North Bihar.

I am now taking this initiative forward, in my personal capacity,  and will be offering cash scholarships to 2 girls from Buxar town in Bihar state.
