“The purpose of a good education is to show you that there are three sides to a two-sided story.” — Stanley Fish
E&H Foundation has been growing more dedicated and determined towards its aim of providing quality education to 100,000 children by 2025. With the instances of successes and new partnerships, E&H Foundation has been able to flourish as a successful organisation that makes a difference and leads towards betterment of young minds by providing them with quality education.
Keeping the aim in mind, E&H Foundation participated in Airtel Delhi Half Marathon (ADHM), 2017 for third consecutive year. It was held on Sunday,19 November, 2017 and being the 10th edition (under the title sponsorship of Bharti Airtel) of ADHM, it was bigger and better. E&H Foundation created significant buzz at the event with almost 100 runners running for the important cause of quality education for the underprivileged children.
For ADHM 2017, E&H Foundation partnered with the employees of Hindustan Powerprojects Private Limited who holds a strong belief in the cause of education and ran to show their support for our initiatives and to raise awareness about this important issue. The Foundation was also supported by individual runners and an enthusiastic bunch of young students from Sri Ram College of Commerce and Gargi College in Delhi who ran with us in solidarity.
The interns at E&H Foundation shared their experience working for the foundation. Rashad Khan, intern, said, “Basically what I found out is people are willing to donate to a cause such as education but the problem is they don’t know where exactly to go and what I found out through working for E&H is it is tough but it’s a thing which is necessary.” Bani Simar, intern, said, “ According to my experience, while working for E&H Foundation I personally realised I am also one of those unaware citizens who have no clue how education crisis is going on in our country and the moment that I realised, being a citizen, it is actually my moral duty as well to empower the underprivileged children in terms of education and that’s the moment i began working with them while empowering other people to support the cause as well.”
ADHM 2017 proved to be a huge success for E&H foundation for the money raised through the event helped in providing quality education to the underprivileged children in Farrukhabad and Lucknow.
