My Birthday Wish - Send Domini to School
In honor of my recent birthday and to celebrate the time IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve spent in Delhi, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m requesting a small contribution from my friends and family to help someone who has made my stay in Delhi over the last few years a real pleasure. This is my cook and housekeeper, Babita. Babita has supported a revolving household of NGO workers, artists, researchers, and eccentric expats with warmth and humor. SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kept our household running smoothly, stocked with homemade chappatis, and created an oasis in the chaotic, often stressful, world that is modern Delhi. Everyone who has visited our house Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and there have been many Ã¢â‚¬â€œ knows BabitaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kindness and warmth and the great job sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s done for us.Babita is also a single mom to her eight-year old daughter, Domini. Domini is charming, full of energy, and constantly up to mischief. On occasion, when Babita brings her to work, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s our pleasure to keep her entertained with coloring, cartoons, and our curious modern ways.After all Babita has done for us, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like to give her something of lasting value: support for DominiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s education. To that end, I am setting up a small fund to support DominiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s educational expenses over the next several years. To help make sure Domini gets the education she deserves, I hope youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll make a donation to the fund. Even a small contribution will go a long way - just $240 dollars will cover a full year of school. The full cost of DominiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s secondary education (through 10th standard) will be about $3,500. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re planning to split this cost with Babita and put anything extra we raise into a small fund for her college education. I will also use a small portion of the fund to buy a second-hand washing machine for BabitaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s home (beats hand washing any day), as the one we meant to bequeath her got lost in the shuffle of moving. You can make a donation through PayPal or follow the link on my Facebook page. For those of you in Delhi, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re welcome to make a cash contribution in person.I am setting up a local account and will make arrangements for payment directly with DominiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s school. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll talk to Babita about keeping everyone updated on DominiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s progress. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d be so grateful for your help, as will Babita and Domini.Hope you can chip in and please share with other whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d like to help.With gratitude,ValerieÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ and the household of O-49 Lajpat Nagar II P.S. Today is DominiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s birthday - letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s make it a really special one! Your donation will send her to school.
