Story

Hi everyone!

Vandana and Karthik here. As some of you may already know, we are getting married to each other. It is a journey that started in our undergrad classrooms with a simple exchange of notes on our coursework. Fast forward 14 years, we're now in a position where we've each received our Master's degrees, and currently work in adjacent offices in Palo Alto, California.

Much of our lives would not be possible without the education we were lucky enough to get. Our parents strived hard to get us a good education. We recognize the head start we have been given in our lives due to the circumstances of our births. We want to mark the momentous occasion of our marriage by creating an opportunity for those children who, due to circumstances outside of their control, face an uphill task of sustaining their education. We have set up this fundraiser towards this cause.

Please consider supporting The Sevashram Trust (http://sevashram.in/about.php) in their efforts to educate underprivileged children. They are based in Coimbatore, India. Any small contribution will go a long way in acquiring resources (breakfast, books, computers) necessary to ensure quality education for these children.
