Save The Children India was born 25 years ago, with a vision of making India a child-friendly nation, and a mission to nurture, educate and guide the growth of vulnerable children and women, thus enabling them to develop into strong, productive citizens. Through innovative initiatives and an impactful approach, Save The Children India upholds its integrity and strives to provide a platform to those in need.
To that end, Save The Children India is committed to preventing exploitation and all other forms of discrimination, thus empowering each of its beneficiaries to lead a life of dignity, self-respect, and independence, and to help them build and sustain a bright future for themselves, and for the country.
The founder, the late Ms. Vipula Kadri has left behind a legacy which only few can match. The organization has won several prestigious awards for being the ‘Best NGO’ in India, and has reached out to over 2,00,000 beneficiaries in the realms of health, education, livelihood and women empowerment.Over the years, the Save The Children India has incorporated the core values that the founder inspired them towards, with an inclination towards Impact, Innovation and Integrity.
All the funds raised through the Marathon will go towards providing access to quality education in urban and rural areas, vocational training to young women and adolescent girls, and a holistic education to mentally challenged and hearing impaired children from less privileged backgrounds.
Save The Children India, founded by my mother the late Mrs. Vipula Kadri is really close to my heart. We are striving to carry on her legacy in the field of social development in India, and appreciate the support that we have been fortunate enough to receive so far. The wonderful people who support us don't just donate, they help us change lives!
I personally appeal to you to please come forward and donate whatever little you can, to support the cause of education – urban and rural, which includes classroom education as well as vocational training and all the skills needed to ensure that the vulnerable are able to stand on their own two feet and face the world with confidence.
