On the weekend of July 16-17, 2022 I will be participating in a long-distance bike ride from Seattle to Portland (STP), an iconic 206 miles ride through western Washington that offers thrilling experience in urban and rural settings . I have been training for the past 3 months to achieve this goal.
While I aim to build physical and mental endurance through this journey, my bigger goal for the STP ride is to raise funds and awareness for the charitable organization ‘Asha for Education’. This organization began as an effort to provide basic education to underprivileged children throughout India. Asha is helping local communities combat the perils of illiteracy, poverty, and exploitation by providing them with tools and means of empowerment.
I would like to request your support in this regard.
How can you help? You can help by contributing towards my modest fundraising goal amount for Asha for Education. Every dollar you donate will go a long way in making a huge positive impact in the lives of underprivileged children.
Today there are many organizations for us to choose from to donate our hard-earned dollars, so Why choose Asha for Education?
Besides their noble cause and work at the grass root levels, Asha is a “minimal overhead” organization, driven by volunteers (including the administrative expenses) ensuring that more than 95% of our donations are sent to their partner groups in India. Asha for Education has consistently secured a 100% rating on Charity Navigator, a well-established database that evaluates non-profit organizations on the basis of transparency, accountability and financial parameters
