My passion reaching out to people in need drove me to this NGO Sahasra Deepika bSD). I came across this NGO while I was working for my previous Company. I used to volunteer at SD every Sundays. This NGO was founded in 1998 by elderly NRI couple (Mr TV Ramakrishna and Mrs Vijaya Ramakrishna), after their retirement. They provide shelter, food and education to the needy children in and around Bangalore. The zeal and enthusiasm of the founders with which they run this NGO fondly referred as Manava Degula (Human Temple), made me more attached to them and their ideals. Mr Ramakrishna is a staunch follower of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa [Preachings], Mother Teresa [Service to the poor/needy], and Mahatma Gandhiji. I have been associated with them since beginning of 2005 and support them in whatever little way I can. I request you to visit them if you are in Bangalore or go to
their website: www.sdie.org for more info on what they do.
I am participating in the 10K run category and have pledged to raise an amount of Rs 5 Lakhs to this NGO. The amount will be utilized towards the children education, food and health care. If you know me and/ or trust me and the cause that I represent, my humble request to you please donate to Sahasra Deepika International for Education.
