Give a girl a bike : help her go to school

Dear Mann Deshi Donors and 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 2400 girls.  Bike gives these girls an opportunity to carry on their advanced education. 

“B-School at women’s doorstep”:  Mann Deshi with B-school together has been able to reach +40,000 women and have provided them capital and business training. 60% of women have been able to start and expand their business successfully.  

Achievements:

  • Reached out +100,000 rural women (saving account holders)
  • Graduated + 40000 women through B-school and out of that 24,600 women have became successful business woman and 80% took loan from Mann Deshi Bank. 
  • More than 5000 women have been able to get the share in the household property
  • Launched the E-Card system, a more efficient, and accessible and secure means to deposit and withdraw money and view transaction history of Mann Deshi client 

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.

Mann Deshi currently has three projects linked with Global Giving, a US and UK based organization that connects people with the countries and causes they are passionate about.  Global Giving is registered under 501c3 so that US donors receive tam exemptions.  For this donation Mann Deshi Foundation is registered under 80G and also has tax exemption.  Your tax-deductible donation will be wired directly to Mann Deshi Foundation from Global Giving. The projects you can contribute to are: 

1.  The Freedom Ride Bicycle Program for Girls provides bicycles to girls in remote locations so that they can travel to school, and therefore complete their education
