Karan Nandwani

I feel privileged and fortunate that my parents could afford to send me to school, to college, and to have me educated. You and I can attest to the fact that Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life. Without education, people get caught in the inter-generational cycles of poverty and backwardness. Seven decades have passed after independence but still, India struggles to achieve a literacy rate of over 90%.

I am passionate about biking and I am embarking on my first interstate ride – 205.5 miles from Seattle to Portland on July 14-15, fondly called the STP.


I am riding for Team Asha to support a cause which is dear to me – Socio-economic equality through the education of underprivileged children.

My goal is to raise $500.

How can you help?

Every cent counts. To put into perspective – $20 can support one student for an entire month including school fees, books etc. (Premium Netflix subscription costs $15.39 per month including tax)
