Hello, I am Diya Thomas in Grade 10 at the Aditi Mallya school in Yelahanka, Bengaluru.
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 and other skills for an entire year would be incredible. Most of these kids come from single-parent homes , are orphans and have a tough life ahead of them.
The folks at BGMS look at the all round growth of these children 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 a great education. It definitely helps that they study in a English medium school as it gives them more opportunities.
The fact that a contribution of just INR 20000 can make a difference to the life of a fellow student 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.
