#RunToEducate with E&H Foundation at ADHM 2019
In India, socio-economic circumstances of a child strongly govern the type of school, education, and quality of life she will live. With RTE, enrollment in schools has gone up. However, the quality of education being provided is extremely poor, especially in the state of UP. ASER 2016 states that 57% of class 5 children in UP cannot even read class 2 Hindi textbooks. These precious years spent in school with no learning is a huge loss to these underprivileged children and their families. Every child deserves access to quality education and healthcare to become contributing members of society and live a quality life.
Since the learning crisis in India is an issue of scale, E&H believes it is imperative to collaborate with like-minded individuals, and organizations and together, empower the lives of children at the bottom of the pyramid. This year, E&H Foundation will be participating in the annual Airtel Delhi Half Marathon and in our 5th year of participation, we aim to go bigger and garner the support of all our past, existing and potential partners. Walk, run, cheer, volunteer, donate & fund-raise for the cause of education. Or simply join us on Race Day (20th October) and #RunToEducate
Since inception, E&H Foundation has supported the education of over 19,000 students and in 2019-20, we are educating 7500 children in over 100 slums and two districts of UP. Impact on the ground is high with 80% children being first generation learners and 50% being girls. Third party assessments (EI- ASSET Tests 2019) show that children educated under our models are at par with the best CBSE schools and their average performance is better than the average performance of the state. 100% of all donations go towards the education of children under our programs as all overhead costs are taken care by founder trustees. You run, we educate. #RunToEducate at ADHM 2019 and be a reason for someone's brighter future.
