Story

Before starting Healstation Foundation, a non profit working for the betterment of tribal villages in West Champaran  Bihar, I was a software engineer with Infosys for almost 10 years. When I interact with young girls in the tribal villages, I see a lot of potential but no opportunities. They can be much more. They do daily chores at home, work in farms on daily wages, study, take care of younger siblings. They dream too, of being able to speak fluent English, using smart phones and using computer like me. And I know each one of them is capable of being me, they just need someone to provide them the opportunity, hold their hand and say “I am here, you can do this.”

I am starting this fundraiser on my birthday to set up a “Free Computer Institute” under our program “Digital Dosti” in one of their own villages where they can manage to learn without compromising their daily wages.

If you are passionate about digital literacy and women empowerment, please do donate. This would be the best gift I hope for.
