Help Aakash send 45 kids to school for a year for his 5th birthday
As Aakash turns 5 and gets ready to go to school in the fall, we can not imagine that lots of kids do not have the privilege and opportunity to do the same. This year for his birthday, we are helping Aakash send 45 kids to school for a year. While it may sound daunting at first, every small step matters.
$16 / INR 1,000 is all it takes to make a difference in a child’s life! On an average, it takes USD 16 / INR 1,000 to fund a child's education through Vibha for a full academic year.
For every contribution that Aakash receives on his birthday through this campaign, we will match dollar for dollar, the first $240.
In addition, my employer, Texas Instruments will further match dollar for dollar, thus
tripling the impact of your contributions.
Furthermore, many employers have matching donation program. If your employer also offers this, then the impact can be quadrupled.
The icing on the cake is that any contribution to Vibha is tax deductible, both in India and the US.
I hope you will join Aakash in this endeavor to help him achieve his goal of sending 45 kids to school for a year.
