WHAT IS THIS CAUSE?
Sahyog International - Sahyog is a grassroots movement that strives to ensure that people with disabilities can lead independent lives with dignity. Since its humble establishment in the foothills of the Himalayas in 1997, they have worked tirelessly to sustain and enrich the lives of thousands of mentally challenged and speech and hearing-impaired children from some of India's poorest communities.
WHY DID WE PICK IT?
My parents & I want to make a conscious attempt to support causes that help our local community in Himachal Pradesh, the Indian state where our family is from. Sahyog has been involved in supporting children with disabilities for many years now. The schools established are in close proximity to our home in Mandi, India, where my parents can closely follow up with what we personally can do to maximize value to help these children in need.
