On Friday, based on the Occasion of International Women's Day i.e. on March 8, 2013 the Plan India Launched an Online Fund Raiser called 'Educate A Girl'.
Always Remember "You Educate A Girl, then You Are Educating The Whole Family" Bringing up women education can educate the whole Nation!! .
A global initiative of Plan India 'Because I Am A Girl' (BIAAG), is a member of Plan International one of the world's largest child centred community development organization, that endeavors to promote girl's rights by equipping them with assets, skills and knowledge necessary to be self-reliant.
The sources reveal that, In alignment with this mission, Plan India's fund-raiser 'Educate a Girl' has been launched on March 8, 2013 to run for a week. During this period, this online fund-raiser will urge those of us who are fortunate to have a privileged life to make generous contributions to the cause. Donations can begin with as low as Rs. 500.
"Education is the key tool for empowering girls and investing in girls delivers a higher return than any other investment made in a country's development," says Bhagyashri Dengle, Executive Director - Plan India. Adding to this, Sapna Kar, Chief Advisor of BIAAG, mentioned, "It is surprising how much very little can accomplish: Rs. 500 can sponsor schooling and school supplies of a girl-child for a month and Rs. 6000 is enough to cover her education costs for a year."
The funds raised through this exclusively digital fund raising initiative will go towards ensuring more and more girls have the opportunity to complete primary and secondary education in a safe and supportive community environment and acquire the skills needed to access economic opportunities. As an integral part of the communication idea, the campaign projects a mosaic of a happy girl child made of blocks. Each block is worth a donation of Rs. 500 and when a donor makes a contribution, his or her picture gets embedded in that block, providing the instant satisfaction of 'standing behind the girl child'. Plan India aims to complete the picture in a week.
What are you waiting for? Visit Educate A Girl and go forward to donate for at-least one child. If you keep up your mind, then you can change the nation. Its we citizens of today, who can bring a brighter tomorrow. Come lets join together to bring up Women's Education.
