My name is Tanya Bhargava and when I was eight years old, I traveled to India and visited a school called Deepalaya, for underprivileged children. This trip exposed me to poor conditions kids grow up in many parts of the world and made me feel like supporting and helping kids in need.
Many of the children who attend Deepalaya live in slums and cannot pay for education. People who live in slums have very little space to live in. At least 7-8 people live in one house. Deepalaya is trying very hard to help girls in these slums obtain an education. My family has been sponsoring education for kids at this school and other schools for the last 10 years. I thought that visiting Deepalaya was nice because we got to see how kids on the other side of the world learn and live. Also, when I was there I felt bad for the kids because they didn’t have any money and they didn’t have enough food. Compared to how much stuff people have in America I knew that I should start helping!
In May 2010, I visited my friend Neha in Pennsylvania. Neha told me about all the projects she has done to help the kids in India and the US. I thought it was a great idea and that I should start helping. I have decided to help children all around the world get the education that they deserve and also find ways for them to improve their health.
I have done a few projects in the last six years and now I am 14 and have decided to do bigger projects to make a difference. I am requesting my friends and family to help me in this task in the coming years.
At the moment, I am working on a few projects:
I plan to do more projects in India and USA and am fully dedicated to these projects and initiatives. I invite my friends and family to help in any capacity they can.
