For the last 12 years, I’ve been associated with Project Why one way or another.
I’ve kept it quiet as a blogger, other than a series of posts I did a few years ago, but recently I have ramped up my voice about this little nonprofit: they do excellent work and are currentlystruggling for funds. (If you know of an individual or organization looking to donate to a good cause–guide them to Project WHY!)
Here are a few posts done last week on this blog by their founder: Anouradha Bakshi.
Each of these seven posts talks about a different aspect of the Project WHY story. They give a wonderful glimpse into the small good things they do despite all odds.
Once I started speaking about Project WHY, a band of excellent bloggers have helped amplify that voice, whether it is by helping with the Sewing Circle fundraiser, or the current fundraiser to help keep the Project WHY school in Okhla open. (If you want to chip in, click here).
These bloggers have been a huge support, and I want thank everyone who either shared the posts on social media, attended the live talk by Anouradha Bakshi, participated in the blog-a-thon, wrote subtitles for videos, made a donation, or raised funds.

Here is the linky-list for the Spread the Love, Save a School blog-a-thon that happened in February.
Hugely grateful to all the bloggers who have written about the Project Why #HelpMithuSaveSchool Fundraiser. The fundraiser is still ongoing, and we would love for more people to come together and give just a little to let these wonderful kids and teachers keep their school.
For now, we need another lakh (1500 USD) to reach the fundraiser target.
If you’re reading this, please please chip in a little–a little will go a long way in keeping a school open–a school started in a dustbin in 2004, which has helped thousands of students since. All details about the school, and the students and teachers involved, are in the fundraiser link.
Have you read the seven posts written by Anouradha Bakshi in the last week? Have you been a part of the effort to save the Project WHY school? Have you seen bloggers come together for a cause? Would you chip in a little to help keep a remarkable school open?
