Donate to Educate is a fund raising program started by a group of college students in the light of this pandemic. We noticed that due to covid-19, all the schools throughout the country have been shut. Bihar government has started online education in all of it's government schools. Therefore we are starting this fund raiser to raise money to buy smart phone/tablets for these girls, so that they can continue their education and don't drop out of school. Currently we're raising funds for only 150 girls who are enrolled in class 6th onwards.
