Sevabharathi Telangana: Techies take part in run to save the girl child
"It was lot of fun to run the entire distance. I had no plans to participate, but once I heard its for a good cause, I decided to get up early and take part," said Mohsin Abbbas, a techie.
Many volunteers, who championed the cause of girl child education, planned and executed the event with companies like Capgemini, Genpact and several other IT companies supporting the cause. Seva Bharathi's Kishori Vikas programme has been planned to educate and empower adolescent girls in slums, bastis and villages. Seva Bharathi is presently running more than 100 Kishori Vikas centres benefitting more than 2,500 girls. Each Kishori Vikas centre provides education, vocational, health and other developmental activities to 25 girls in a slum from Monday to Saturday.
