Story


Hi there!


Thank YOU for reading this. As you may know, Rakshit and I are tying the knot in July this year, which marks a very significant milestone in our lives. Needless to say, we are very happy and excited as the day draws closer. In our happiness, we took a moment to remember the not so fortunate, and would like to take this opportunity to spread even more joy.


Rakshit & I have both been very lucky to receive a high-quality education and gain access to the many opportunities this brings about. Sadly, this is not the case for the majority of our country’s children. According to UNICEF, over 40% of Indian children enrolled in schools are likely to drop out before they turn 14. This can be due to a variety of reasons, financial pressures at home being one of them. The effects on society are far-reaching, hindering development and locking communities into a negative cycle of unmet needs.


We would like to take this opportunity to help these children who certainly deserve better. We strongly believe that our friends,would opt to support this worthy cause. By lending (not donating!) to those in need, you can bring about a sea of change in the circumstances of these children and through them, their entire families and communities. As the saying goes, give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.                                                                                                                         


For every dollar YOU lend, YOU ensure the 8 year old "Chotu" instead of working at the tea stall will go to school tomorrow.


By virtue of our previous experiences on Milaap (through volunteering as well as lending), we know that Milaap will ensure the best use of your loans. Do note this is a lending platform and the funds will come back to you, what a great way to create impact with your idle funds sitting in your bank account, no?


We would like to thank you for whatever contributions you are able to make, and could not have asked for a better wedding wish!



Love,


Arti & Rakshit
