We firmly believe that societal change comes with education and empowerment of women. Towards this end, the WGAA started the ‘One for One’ initiative in 2017. Through this initiative,for the past three years we have been supporting the education of 56 underprivileged girls living in the slums of Dehra Dun. We are doing this by collaborating with the Aasrsa Trust, an organisation that educates, feeds and rehabilitates street children, beggars and ragpickers from the streets of Dehra Dun.
To make a larger impact on the empowerment of the underprivileged girl child, we are reachingout to all Ex-Welhamites through this initiative. Our endeavour is to connect each Ex-Welhamite with the educational cost of one underprivileged girl child – ‘One for One’!
The annual cost of educating one girl child is currently Rs 21,000/-. This is inclusive of school fees, uniform, books and transport. We are looking for a minimal commitment of 5 years. We urge you to come forward individually, as siblings, as friends or as a batch to ‘adopt’ the education of an underprivileged girl child.
We urge you to read the attachment about the work being done by the Aasraa Trust in Dehra Dun.
