Running for Nanhi Kalis

Running Delhi Half Marathon for a cause close to my heart.

Please help me raise funds for, a Mahindra group backed NGO working tirelessly in the field of girl child education across India.

Details of the Organisation

Project Nanhi Kali is supporting the education of over 110,000 underprivileged girl children across 10 states in India. Its work is rooted in the belief that education is the single most powerful intervention for transforming lives. For thousands of disadvantaged girls in India, education is the only weapon that will open the doors to provide them with equal opportunity, so that they can grow, learn and realize their own potential.

The intervention includes academic support with  before or after-school classes to strengthen learning levels. Material support is provided with schoolbags, shoes, books, uniforms, lunch boxes and other essentials that help a girl go to school with dignity.

Project Nanhi Kali also mobilizes communities of  parents, teachers and village elders to make them active stakeholders in the process of changing mindsets towards educating girls. They work closely with the community, sensitizing them on the importance of girl child education and  against various social evils like child marriage and gender discrimination, thus providing a much needed platform to change mindsets and negative attitudes towards the girl child.

Every bit donated helps and goes towards the Rs. 3,000 it takes to support a girl through a whole year of her primary education, or towards the Rs. 4,200 it takes to support her through a year of secondary education. By donating to Project Nanhi Kali, you can #EducateAGirlChild

Dear friends/contributors,

Thank you again for all the generous contributions. The funds raised have crossed 30K!

It was a tough race for me at personal level, missed my sub 2 goal by 2min 27 secs (total time, 02:02:27), but the disappointment has been more than offset by the funds raised for Nanhi Kali :)

Would like to attribute the sub par performance to heavy smog in first 7K and to my old dri-fit socks that betrayed me (started feeling blister pain) around 17K :p but to be honest I think I needed one more 21k run in my training schedule to get max out of self.

Will be uploading time certificate, photos etc when they are available.
