I am Swati and I have created this page for my family :)
We are a mother, father, son team who have been running with Vibha for the last 4 years. I have done half marathons every year. My son, Abhinav, who is 10 years old has done 5k's and 10K's. But this year it is going to be different, Abhinav is doing his first half Marathon with his dad on June 14th, 2015.
Our entire family is invloved with Vibha and doing the best we can to provide education to the underpriviledged kids in India. PS: Our youngest son has done his share of 5K's and 10K's as well sitting on the stroller :)
Vibha provides education to underpriviledged children in India. I have witnessed poverty, child labor every time I visit India. Child labor is a dagger through India's soul. The country has the dubious distinction of being home to the largest child labor force in the world, with an estimated 30 percent of the world's working kids living here.These kids are forced to work to help their poor families, but this robs them of their right to childhood and all its associated joys. Child labor also crushes their right to normal physical and mental development, to education and thus to a healthy, prosperous life.
With the money that we'll raise by running for this cause, will be used towards education for these kids, to build schools and better education for these kids for whom education is a luxury.
