We have committed to raise $2620 or more for the Humana People to People project this year. The Humana People to People India (HPPI) academy for street and working children is located in Sahibabad Industrial Area near Ghaziabad in UP. The school is mainly targeted towards children of migrant laborers that live in a slum/urban-village called Kadkadmodal. The goal of the school is to provide basic education to the children, to teach them good life practices and to encourage and enable them to join government schools after 3rd standard. Since July 2008, Asha Austin has been supporting the operating expenses of the school; premises’ rent, school supplies, teachers’ salaries, teachers’ transportation within the community, children’s health checkup and exposure visits.

Welcome to our fundraising page!
We’re running for Team Asha this year. Our tryst with Team Asha began last year when we trained for and ran two half marathons and also raised over $1500 for Asha Austin. We felt extremely overwhelmed and grateful for the support and encouragement that we received from our friends and family so we are embarking on this journey together this time! We are both training towards target races in early spring. Sirsha will be running a trail race for the first time in March 2012 at the 25k Nueces Trail Race, while Bharath will be running the 3M half marathon in Austin in January 2012. Help us reach our fundraising goals by then!
