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 is a non-profit organization established by the late Mrs. Vipula Kadri in 1988 to support and empower underprivileged women and children. Till date, Save The Children India has reached out to over 200,000 beneficiaries in the areas of education, health, anti-human trafficking, and vocational training.More about Save The Children India
When I joined this award-winning organization in 2008, I was completely bowled over by the immense goodwill that Mrs Vipula Kadri had created. It was the ethos that she created which made it very easy for me to work towards team building and take her work to a greater level in terms of impact and reach. The five years that I have been here have been very satisfying and I feel a kind of a spiritual connect to the organization which makes me feel that I am visiting a temple every day, instead of a place of work.
I urge you to come forward and support my run at the Mumbai Marathon. Any amount donated, big or small, makes more of a difference than you can ever imagine, and goes a long way in securing the future of a less privileged child in our country.
Having been the Principal of R D National College, I truly understand the value of education, and appeal to you to support this cause, so that those who are less privileged may also have access to a good education, which can then become the foundation on which to build their future.
