“The mountains are calling and I must go…”
– John Muir
If you ask me what is the best part about living in Seattle, the mountains of the PNW will be at the top of my list. Right from the time I moved here, the magnificent mountains of the PNW have always fascinated me and I can never get enough of looking and admiring them. In the past two years, I have been hiking around Seattle and this year I have decided to challenge the inner hiker in me and attempt to summit Mt Baker and then Mt Rainier and then some more.
We are fortunate that we get the opportunity to experience all these wonderful things. And then there are folks who struggle everyday for basic things of life. Bringing relief to such folks would be great, so I am teaming up Asha to raise funds to help those in need.
Asha for Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing socio-economic change in India primarily through education.
Founded in 1983, GRAVIS works in the most impoverished and remote parts in the Thar Desert in Rajasthan. Core areas of GRAVIS’ work are water conservation, agriculture and forestry, healthcare, primary education, training and capacity building. Working with women in order to empower them has been an important aspect of organization’s overall approach.
