I'm Maya. I'm a daughter, a sister, a grand-daughter. I'm a student, a budding angler, a lover of sports, music and fashion. Above all, I'm a girl. And I'm running the TCS 10K Marathon with Reaching Hand--a remarkable charitable organisation that has been providing a home and proper education to destitute children as well as conducting various programmes for development of women and children since 1996.
I'm running for Girls' Education, because we are much more than just a gender: we are an equal contributor to society and a force to be reckoned with!
With the funds raised in the previous Marathon we have been able to purchase our own property
However, our struggle does not end here, we have a long way to go, and we need all the support we can get to make this a more balanced, a more empowered and productive society.
