The Kiran Anjali Project, a non-profit whose mission is to, “advance educational opportunities for underprivileged children, especially girls, in India”, is having a run/walk event on March 3rd with proceeds to benefit education for disadvantagd girls in India. The run/walk location is at Sports Basement at 1881 Ygnacio Valley Rd. in Walnut Creek. From their website:
Millions of India’s low-income children receive a sub-standard education or no education at all. The situation is especially dire for girls from poor families, who are much less likely to be educated and are at risk for exploitation. However, there are many grassroots activists working to change this. The Kiran Anjali Project, a U.S. based nonprofit, links with existing Indian organizations to provide them with professional advice and grants so that they can serve more children.
KAP’s mission is to advance educational opportunities for underprivileged children, especially girls, in India. We envision a bias-free world in which all children are given a high quality education and job skills to be self-sufficient. We believe that by offering professional advice, guidance and grants to organizations that are working to educate the children of India’s poor, we can effect great change.
