I am running 3 half marathons to support good quality education for children in rural Tamil Nadu

As you walked back from school, you would have seen a kid selling ice cream or peanuts, just outside the school gate. Years later, as you drive past those busy traffic filled roads to reach your office, you notice a similar scene but with different faces. Many children in India do not have quality access to even basic education. Giving them the ability to read and write is the first step in giving them a chance at better life.
The learning levels in Tamil Nadu have been consistently low in basic Tamil and Math. Eureka Child Foundation, along with its NGO partners, aims at addressing this problem. ECF has been running after-school centres in rural areas to improve the quality of teaching there.
Eureka supports the running of after-school centres in 500 villages with a focus on improving learning outcomes in language, mathematics and science.
Eureka Child Foundations currently reaches out to more than 25000 children in 23 districts of Tamil Nadu in partnership with other local NGOs.
Bringing together my passion for running and every child’s right to education, I am running three half marathons in the name of Eureka Child Foundations. This year, you will find me at the Spirit of Wipro Marathon (Sep 21), Bengaluru Marathon (Oct 19th) and The Wipro Chennai Marathon (Dec 7).
For all donations above INR 1000 you will receive a personalised thank you note and a sketch made just for you. This fundraiser aims to spread awareness about the initiatives taken up by Eureka Child Foundations, and also create a general awareness about maintaining fitness. The money from this fundraiser will fully fund 2 villages.
