After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.
- Philip Pullman.
The Baale Mane is a wonderful orphanage that serves as home for around 40 young girls, keeping them off the streets and giving them the opportunity to pursue their dreams. It provides the first three needs Pullman describes above, while giving them the reigns of the fourth. These girls are amazing, inspiring stories that we at Team Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice (Team Sugar for short) would love to share with the world.
Team Sugar consists of two aspiring writers and one aspiring painter- who go to school together and believe in the Baale Mane’s mission. This summer, along with running the TCS World 10k Bengaluru, we plan to craft some fiction and artwork to show our dedication and commitment to this project, which can be found at teamsugarspice.wordpress.com!
The money we raise will go into the Baale Mane’s Campus Expansion programme, to create more space for the current girls, and allow the Mane to bring on new ones. Help us build a brighter future for these girls!
