My name is Harini Shankar. I am a sophomore at Tesla STEM High School. I have been a Junior Asha Volunteer for the past three years, and I am running in the Big Backyard 5k in Redmond this June 2nd to raise funds for Asha for Education. I am particularly passionate about helping bring education to young girls in India. I have taken on the Big Backyard 5k to give my support to the Seattle chapter of Asha for Education, and help the kids achieve their goals.
Junior Asha (JA) is the youth wing of Asha for Education – Seattle Chapter, and functions under its umbrella. Asha is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to bringing about socio-economic change in India primarily through education. JA has been in existence since 2009. JA kids decided to adopt one of Asha’s projects, Adruta Childrens Home, as a project of choice to support with our fund raising efforts.
I request you to please donate towards this cause and encourage my run while making a difference in the lives of children at Adruta. All your donations are Tax deductible. Please mention “Harini Shankar Junior Asha” while making your donation.
Thank you all for choosing to support me,
