I Erica Pillai studying in grade 11th at BHIS, MALAD have undertaken this campaign because I believe that education is a human right and every individual must have it. Sadly, many children in rural areas of Maharashtra drop out of school due to many reasons and one of them is not having footwear! This caught my attention and made me undertake this campaign. Walking barefoot for 3-5 km from home to school and then back home on rough, unclean and gravelled roads/paths under the blazing, hot sun (knowing that the temperature could shoot up to 40-45 degrees) is something that I could never do or even imagine doing. However, students in rural areas are in this situation.
These children who are being supported are doing well despite the adverse circumstances and conditions. The fact that raising 20,000 INR can give footwear and transform the lives of 100 children is something that I am excited about.
Please support my campaign and let us together bring confidence and change into the lives of these fellow students in rural areas of Maharashtra. Please fund this campaign and also share it on social media.
