We are Sachin and Vaishali Harwalkar, and we are biking to raise funds for Asha. It is an honor for us to volunteer our time and efforts to help support the various projects that Asha for Education supports. What began as an effort to provide basic education to underprivileged children throughout India, has grown into a effort to provide a better foundation for local communities to combat the perils of illiteracy, poverty and exploitation. Asha has touched the lives of thousands of children, and their families, providing them with tools and means of empowerment.They work with a variety of project partners and community groups in many educational and development related endeavors.
We are excited to be biking 206 miles from Seattle to Portland as part of STP 2019 this July. This is our second time with a long-distance ride and it has been a lot of fun riding and training on the bike trails of Pacific Northwest every week since March.
We are fortunate to be able to contribute to these efforts, and now we invite you to do the same! We’re asking you to sponsor our ride with whatever contribution you can make. All donations are tax deductible, and the organization is registered with many corporate employers for donation-matching programs. In addition, we promise to match your donations, dollar-for-dollar. Together, we can double the impact of your donations! Any contribution you make will help achieve our fundraising goals of $750 and go a long mile in bringing smiles, education, well-being and awareness to children and their communities.
