Dear Mann Deshi Supporters,

Educating Girls is like sowing the seed which gives rise to a green, cheerful and full grown plant - but to get that education she has to face many challenges. In remote villages most of the families allow girls to study only till primary school even though she is good in her academic studies. This is often because school is far away so she does not have time to walk there and do house work.Transport in rural areas is either expensive or does not exist. A family's money is given to a boys education, not a girl.

Amruta is a clever student from a village called Gondavale. Her school is far away and to get there she has to walk.

“One day The Mann Deshi Foundation visited our school and gave us the information about the free bicycle programme. I was very happy to listen that there are such institution that help girls in completing their education, for a moment I wished that I could get the bicycle so that I can save my time of travel and surprisingly my class teacher recommended my name for bicycle, I felt very happy. While returing home with bicycle I knew there would be major change in my life and that would really help me and my family.  Now I reach school on time and return home before dark. I can help my mother in her work and get enough time for self-study. All this has helped me in getting good marks in exams. As I reach school early I can participate in other activities also. My aim is to purse the career of school teacher once I grow up because according to me it is the only medium through which you can transfer your knowledge and good thoughts to other", says Amruta.

There are many girls like Amruta in India and The support of Mann Deshi’s Donor help them to complete their education.

Thank you so much for all your support !!
