give a girl a bike: help her go to school

  Dear Mann Deshi Friends and Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support of the Bicycle Project.

100 Rural School Girls are getting BICYCLES on the occasion of Women’s Day.  Your support will help them to continue their higher education.  For more information please click on : http://youtu.be/zndJuqJ9JMU

“I want to become an engineer”. This was an aspiration of Ms. Swapa Bhandare. Mann Deshi started Freedom Ride program in support of girls for who wish to continue higher education. Lack of transport facilities force girls to drop out from school after 7th grade. The Mann Deshi Foundation has provided bicycle to thousands of girls. Bicycle program helps them to travel and continue high school. After high school they also enter graduate program. Mann Deshi also organizes career development workshop for these girls. In one of the workshop Ms. Bhandare said, “Without bicycle I would have dropped out of the school and would have become wage laborers in fields.” High schools education brought aspiration to these young girls. In career development workshop one of them said “I want to become an engineer”

On the occasion of Women’s Day, 8th March, 2013 Mann Deshi is distributing 100 bicycles to rural school girls.  We greatly appreciate all the support you have given us so far and hope that you will help us to make this program successful by providing grants to buy a girl a bicycle.    

Your generous donation will support these young girls to dream whatever they wish and also motivate to choose the option like becoming engineer.

Most Sincerely,

Mann Deshi Foundation

give a girl a bike: help her go to school

Dear  Mann Deshi Supporters,

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Give a girl bike, Change her Life”:  Mann Deshi has given bicycle to more than 4000 girls.  Bike gives these girls an opportunity to carry on their advanced education.

A Hope in the time of Drought-Mann Deshi Catte Camp” : Today, people are migrating from Mann Taluka, not in search of employment but in search of drinking water. Mann taluka is facing an acute drought situation in more than 185 villages. Since last 24 months there is no rain. In such a situation it is crucially needed to provide water to households by tankers and to arrange fodder and water in cattle camps in the areas.

 “B-School at woman’s doorstep”:  Mann Deshi Bank with B-school together has been able to reach +155,000 women and have provided them capital and business training. 60% of women have been able to start and expand their business successfully.

This would not have been possible without our supporters and partners.  And as we come to the end of another successful year, we want to thank those who have contributed to Mann Deshi’s success.

The Mann Deshi aims to provide underprivileged rural women with the resources they need to improve their lives.  Mann Deshi works holistically to improve slummy women’s lives through a variety of financial services, business trainings and skills.

Thus, we hope that you remember Mann Deshi when you think about buying gifts this holiday season.  Any donations you make will have a direct impact on the disadvantaged rural women and girls we serve, allowing them to improve their lives: your donation would truly be a gift that kept on giving.
