BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST
EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2016
Thank you for reading about a cause we care deeply about. We were introduced to She’s The First (“STF”) a year or so ago - we had been looking for a way to support girls’ education in India but found it hard to vet the various organizations that do this. STF’s simple mandate is to provide scholarships to girls in low-income countries who will be the first in their families to graduate from high school. You are able to pick the partner school as well and we chose one close to Harish's hometown in India. Our scholars are three precocious five year olds at a school called Shanti Bhavan, an hour away from Bangalore in South India (a beautiful boarding school that Harish visited in January with his mom - photo above). They started kindergarten at the same time as our daughter, and our hope is that all four grow up to have the same, bright futures. Please visit the STF website to learn more about the charity at: https://www.shesthefirst.org/about/
We also proudly serve on the organization's Development Committee helping to raise awareness and support for STF and its wonderful initiatives. Our biggest event is happening on 11/17 (The Annual Mentorship Breakfast in New York City) and we would be honored to have you participate by donating to this crowdrise page. Any amount you give makes a difference to the work of She's the First - we greatly appreciate you considering this wonderful charity among the many noble causes out there. And please spread the word!
