Anya Ahuja walks the ramp for a reason
Fundraising for Dallas Vibe 2020
One of my goals for 2020 is to create an impact on the world around me. I have therefore decided to put walk the ramp to raise awareness and funds for Vibha. Vibe 2020, is an exciting fundraiser for Vibha- whose core goal is to Educate, Empower and Enable children through education. The event will be held on Feb 29th, at Noah's special events center in Irving Texas. The fashion walk at Vibe is titled "Art Artistry and Tradition" and will showcase the longstanding traditions of Indian silks and textiles.
Why am I doing this ? Did you know that while elementary school enrollment levels in India have touched historical highs (97%), it drops significantly (to 56%) by the time a child reaches senior secondary level. And of the enrolled students only 70% on an average make it to school every day. Learning outcomes are also poor - per the 2018 Annual Survey of Education Report only a quarter of all third graders surveyed are at grade level in terms of math and reading skills, while only half of all children surveyed can read and less than a third can do basic arithmetic.
Vibha works on enabling solutions to problems like these. Vibha's volunteers are constantly on the look out for scalable, sustainable and replicable models that can meaningfully address the root cause. Outcomes matter, and the bar is always set high for trust and transparency, one that was recognized with the 2019 Top Rated Award from GreatNonProfits and the 2019 GuideStar Platinum Seal, which puts Vibha in the top 0.1% of over 2 Million listed non-profits.
The efforts of Vibha currently empower almost 2.3 million children in India. I am honored to support this cause. Will you join our movement?
