Tata Mumbai Marathon 2023

Dear Friends , India has among the largest number of schools (over 1.5 million) and school-goers (over 260 million) in the world. However, despite efforts to ensure universal access to education, the country has a severe learning crisis. The National Achievement Survey (NAS) is a national level assessment conducted to obtain information about the learning achievement of students of Grades 3, 5, 8 and 10 across India. NAS 2021 has shown evidence of significant learning losses due to the pandemic. While learning gaps existed even before the pandemic, two years of lockdown exacerbated the gaps. The biggest cities in Maharashtra - Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur and Nasik - are in the bottom third performers on these assessments, despite having better public infrastructure resources Recognizing the need to work with government schools to achieve impact at greater scale, Akanksha began the School Project in 2007 in collaboration with the Municipal Corporations of Mumbai and Pune. The project aims to create a scalable school model within the government system that drives wider systemic reform in education. Today, Akanksha’s network has grown to 26 schools with more than 600 educators ,12000 students & 4000 alumni Your contribution would help The Akanksha Foundation to ensure High-Quality and Free Education to Children from Underprivileged Families and get their families out of poverty. Join me & support my campaign for Quality education through The Akanksha Foundation. Dear Friends,“Education is a movement from Darkness to Light” At Light of Life Trust, we believe that education is the means to eradicate poverty & generate employment. Through ‘Project Anando’ we aim to support the underprivileged rural children (probable school dropouts) to complete their secondary education, as well as focus on their all-around development.Over the years, we have impacted 155200+ children across the states of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan & Odisha. Today LOLT’s educated rural youth are earning ₹10000-12000 starting salaries, whereas their parents are earning less than ₹5000. This process of transformational change has been described by the parents through the slogan “Light of Life, Way of Life”.I am raising funds to support 1000 children through our work in empowering the first generation of educated youth and providing them with educational resources. Please support me in this endeavor. Donate generously, every donation is a blessing and no amount is too small. Let’s together Break the generational cycle of poverty one life at a time. Be the Light to Spread the Light The Light of Education. The Light of Employment. The Light of Life.

About Me
Hi, My name is Abhir. I'm 16 and currently studying at The Cathedral and John Connon School. I consider myself extremely fortunate that I've been able to get access to the very best education and other opportunities. My education is something I value very much. Keeping this in mind, this year I'm raising funds for two organisations which help support this cause that is so close to my heart - tackling the rampant issue of illiteracy in our country. I hope that you too will join me in my endeavour and support this initiative. Best, Abhir.
