Like previous years, we are again running with an aim to raise funds for our schools in India. Each of our schools are managed by dedicated NGOs who not only work on bringing children to school but also teach them about health aspects, sustainable development, rights in constitution etc. Working in different Asha Zurich projects, I could see how a small amount of 20 CHF/month can provide quality education, healthy meal and health care for a child in different parts of India. COVID crisis affected everyone around the world and so our funds are also diminishing due to difficulty to organize charity events at this time. COVID crisis also affected the education in our schools severely. This difficult time demands even more concern for those belonging to bottom of economic ladder. And we are trying our best to help students to receive the basic education and health care facilities in the middle of pandemic.
Our organization is dependent on your charity and therefore, we are requesting you to help us to run our schools. This year we could not take part in Zurich Marathon, which was the most important fundraiser for us. So we decided to run ourselves to celebrate the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi on the first week of October. I decided to run 10 km to remind myself of Mahatma Gandhi's talisman for humanity.
"Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man/ woman whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him/ her."
I hope every steps of me, with your help, will lead to a better life of someone from the most underprivileged section of society.
