My story

[p]Dear All[/p][p]On the 19th of November, I will be taking part in the Costa Rica [url=http://tel:2019]2019[/url] Challenge. As part of a group I will be trekking across Costa from coast to coast covering over 90 miles in 9 days.[/p][p]This is a physically and mentally enduring trek and will involve travelling through various types of challenging terrains, dense tropical rain forest, intense humidity, jungle creatures, trekking up a demanding [url=http://tel:3800]3800[/url]m mountain and camping along the way in the jungles![/p][p]As most of you may know, I have climbed mount Kilimanjaro and Stok Kangri (Himalayas) over the last 9 years to help and support the Food For Life Vindravan (FFLV). Details of work FFLV do can be found on [url=http://www.fflv.org]www.fflv.org[/url][/p][p]FFLV has been working in Vrindavan area since [url=http://tel:1991]1991[/url]. Work includes free Meal Distribution, Cleaning and Tree Planting, Paper Recycling, Organic Farming, Sewing and Embriodery Centre (providing training & employment opportunities for village women). Primarily, FFLV runs schools to provide free education, meals, skill training and medical help to over [url=http://tel:1500]1500[/url] girls in Vrindavan, India. Students are taken on from the poorest families in the town.[/p][p]Over the past 25 years of working at grassroots, they have seen the intense hardships girls face without an education, Child Marriage being the most common one, girls are forced into an adult role at an early age. FFLV aims to keep the girl in school until she is 18 to prevent early marriage. Girls are encouraged and supported to pursue university education if they wish.[/p][p]This is a charity that is close to my heart and knowing that we can help to make a difference to these girls lives is phenomenal. For us living in the western world, we can take some of these simple liberties of education and knowledge for granted. These to us are basic but to these girls, they are the best gift they could ever receive to make their lives better.[/p][p]With your help we can play our part to end this vicious cycle of early marriage and poverty to significantly change the future prospects for these girls and future generations. Through empowerment and education.[/p][p]They have a chance to have the future of their dreams! Help their dreams become a reality.[/p][p]Please dig deep and sponsor me to make a difference for this very worthy cause. Your donations will help to change and shape the future of the children in the town and give them a more positive and bright outcome.[/p][p]Please spend a few minutes and watch the video link:[/p][p]https://youtu.be/eWEvWVDfvvs[/p][p]We are individually all paying for the trip so 100% of your kind donations will be go towards the school and students.[/p][p]All your help is much appreciated![/p][p]Thank you![/p][p]Avi Bhundia[/p]
