I support Girl Child Education
Balkrishan Mishra is going to participate for the second time in the Umeed 1000 Cyclothon. He has already cycled for 1300 kilometres, including the Umeed Cyclotron 1000 of 2017.
Balkrishan's purpose of participating in this noble cause is to generate awareness amongst people about the importance of education and inspire them to come forward to support RBL Bank Umeed 1000, a great step towards eliminating illiteracy by raising funds for the underprivileged girls.
He says that since he too is the father of a daughter, and feels that she is the world’s best gift to him. He dedicates his upcoming journey to his little princess.
This year, Balkrishan is cycling for Udbhav School, which focuses on providing holistic English medium education to low income group girl children in urban slums in Hyderabad. IIMA Alumni Association Hyderabad Chapter Charitable Trust took over the school (facing imminent closure) located in Rasoolpura, a slum area of Hyderabad, designated as a notified slum by the government in April, 2013. The IIMA alumni are spurred by the vision that all children should have the same opportunities. The school was renamed as “Udbhav School” by IIMAAA Hyderabad Chapter Charitable trust. Therefore, the Udbhav management is committed to providing the Udbhav children opportunities and education for their all round growth and development. Their vision is to transform the lives of at least 10,000 underprivileged children and their families by 2025.
