My name is Akassh Rathan and I am in Grade 11 at the Sishya school, Chennai. My hobbies include basketball, video gaming.
I have undertaken this campaign because I think being able to impact the life of a needy child (who possibly is my age or slightly younger) by giving them education, a place to stay, food, medicines and other skills for an entire year would be incredible. Some of these kids are orphans too and I would so like to help many of them.
I have heard of initiatives before that did one or two of the above. This initiative however looks at the holistic growth of this children from who come from economically backward sections of society. This will definitely transform their lives and help them get jobs when they grow up and get them out of the vicious cycle of poverty. Through this campaign, I want to create the same opportunity for all those less fortunate children so that they get good food, a safe place to stay and great education.
The fact that a contribution of just INR 20000 can make a difference to the life of a fellow student in a rural area for an entire year made me realise that I must do something about it. Please support my campaign as we can together transform the lives of at least one and possibly more such fellow students.
