Dear Ainiti Supporter,
Late last year we took our first tentative steps towards fulfilling a lifelong passion of giving back to our communities.
Growing up in the suburbs of Mumbai, India, Bernadine had watched, with much sadness, as the young girls from the local orphanage went about their daily routine. Since then, she has often thought about how she could make a difference in their lives. For Philip, it was all about the importance and the vital necessity for a strong education that was severely lacking. Putting these two ideas together, we feel blessed to be able to form our non-profit organization, Ainiti.
With the gender inequality that exists today, it is very important that the girls are confident and self-sufficient. Basic computer skills are essential in advancing these girls and opening the door for greater opportunities. A computer education builds confidence, benefits the individual girl and becomes contagious by rolling up to strengthen future generations. Ainiti (www.ainiti.org) educates underprivileged girls, giving them infinite possibilities for a strong future and the ability to build great and meaningful careers filled with passion and determination. Our hope is that well-educated girls will break the gender bias that is prevalent in underdeveloped economies.
We started with a modest goal of educating thirty-six girls in 2016 and are ecstatic to report in 2017 that number is fast approaching four hundred young girls. This success was primarily due to the need and acceptance of the program, along with the strong and consistent generosity of our family and friends.
As the yearend approaches, we are looking to you to please help us continue our mission. Any gift you make will have a significant impact on the future of these underprivileged girls. Each child we educate means the world to us and we are deeply grateful for your support.
