Completing a marathon is a great achievement for anybody. However, the possibility of changing somebody’s life being added to every step in your run can give you a sense of pride like no other. Go ahead and make a difference. Believe and be the change you want to see.
As you prepare for the marathon, you can choose to run with a purpose. Start by picking a cause you believe in - it could be education, solar lighting, clean water or women empowerment.
Inspire your friends, family and others like yourself to join you and help you in raising funds and reaching your target.
Milaap was initiated in June 2010, by three passionate young entrepreneurs who had a single vision, to change people's concept of giving and make it a personal, transparent and sustainable process. By crowd-sourcing loans for social causes, Milaap enables the urban global citizen to make an impact in a small but accountable way. You can choose a person you want to help, make a returnable contribution for as little as $25 and watch the magic ensue. The end borrowers are the deserving, working poor of India, students, small businesses, families who need a small amount of capital to get ahead and change their lives for the better.
