Namaskaram! My name is Prem. I'm running the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon because I am so inspired by the work being done by the volunteers at Isha Vidhya that I would like to do something to be a part of this.
Isha Vidhya provides high quality, english medium, computer based education in rural India. The children are doing exceedingly well in academics and extra curricular activities totally belying their background.
Having sponsored a child for a few years, I know the joy of receiving that first email where you get to know which child you are sponsoring and periodic progess updates that follow to let you know how he/she is performing. The volunteers also invite us to stay in touch with the child we are sponsoring though letters (the children write and speak really good english!!)
I would like to use this run as an opportunity to invite all of you to be a part of this by supporting these children. Experience the joy and fulfillment of extending yourself to another life!!
