My name is Avantika and I'm in Grade 9 studying at the Jayshree Periwal International School in Jaipur.
Like me, there are millions of 14-year-olds out there that go to school. However, unlike me, they don't have slippers or shoes that they can wear to get to their classrooms. I have undertaken this campaign because I think wearing footwear is something that is a basic need for anyone. I cannot imagine walking barefoot many kilo-meters every day, in the blistering heat over hard rocks and endless fields. Footwear gives these children a newfound confidence which no amount of iPhones or Yeezy's could ever give us. Despite the adverse circumstances they live in these children do well in school, and are determined to do even better.
By raising 15000 INR, GreenSole will give footwear & transform the lives of 75 children- something that I am very excited about.
I hope that YOU can help me in my endeavour to bring about confidence and change the lives of my fellow students from rural areas in and around Jaipur by supporting me. To do so, please fund this campaign and don't forget to share it with your friends on social media.
