Weʼve raised £95 to Support the All Religions Women's Wing Community Project, Let, India "Making Educated Choices Project"
- Funded on Wednesday, 8th August 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In a couple of weeks I'll embark on a world first ‘Safaris for the Soul’ women’s only motorbike adventure, riding a Royal Enfield through the Himalayas of India. Whilst there I will visit this community project that provides eduction for girls - please read on to learn more:-
The Making Educated Choices Project’ works at a grassroots level, directly with the local All Religions Women’s Wing (A.R.W.W.) of Ladakh, India. The A.R.W.W. is an organisation established many years ago, comprised of women from Buddhist, Christian, Muslim and Muslim Shea faiths. Together they currently support the education of 22 young girls, from Leh and surrounding rural Ladakhi villages, who would not otherwise have access to education.
In India, it’s estimated that up to 42% of Indian girls under 19 experience sexual violence; 47% marry before 18 and some 4 million girls give birth before the age of 15!
Educating girls helps to improve this.
I am hoping to raise some much needed funds to help support these girls to transform their lives & hoping to make a difference. I will match ever £ raised (upto £500)
Every little helps, so if you can give even a few pennies it would be very much appreciated.
