Chandini Ammineni added 3 new photos to the album: Mongol Rally — with Anitha Reddy at Ulan-Ude Railway Station.

20 countries, driving a tiny old car from London to Mongolia, 15,152 kms, 104 kids' lives changed - all of this happened because of 106 donors, countless amazin...g friends, family, and supporters! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! ❤️🙏🏽

By law, no child in India under 14 should work. But so many rural children are shackled by soul-crushing poverty that it forces them into child labor in fields and factories. Stats on Indian children: 2/3 are physically abused, 1/2 have known sexual abuse, 1/5 severe abuse. Over 1/2 work 7 days a week. There are over 12 million child workers in India officially, 60 million by some NGO estimates (from friendsofsbt.org Hat tip: Soma Paul)

Your sponsorship gives a rural child a quality education and nutrition, and a passage to a normal life. We are at 104/200 kids sponsored. Donations can be USD or INR and are 100% tax deductible and can be made at http://happyharriet.co Any amount is appreciated. Will you help?

Help children in rural India have fun figuring out boiling point of water at 11500 ft instead of doing the back-breaking work of arranging matchsticks in a matchbox for Rs12/day. All it takes is $20/month. Can you be someone's fairy godmother?

What do 2 Vegans eat on a road trip from London to Mongolia ? Well Chandini Ammineni Anitha Reddy through the help of Google translate and some assistance from locals have managed to feed themselves the last 2 weeks.

Now that the vegans are fed, let's look at why mid day meals are so critical for uplifting rural kids through education.

Many Isha Vidhya students come from poor families and so suffer from malnutrition and anemia. The midday meals go a long way in providing a well-balanced nutritional diet at a subsidized cost to our students. For $72 you can sponsor a nutritious meal to one child. For most kids meals provided at Isha Vidhya USA Schools are the only source of nourishment each day. Donate at http://bit.ly/harriet4education

Why drive 10,000 kms in an Old Beat up Car ?

We’re two adventurers who heard about “The Great Mongol Rally” and thought, “Why not?”. Driving across two continents with no support, set route, or plan, all on a whim, why wouldn’t we immediately say, “Yes!”? Enter: the rally.

Our cravings for this adventure caused a buzz among our friends and relatives who promptly named us Exhibit A and Exhibit B. They started being loudly and overtly concerned that we were off our rockers, whi...le secretly marveling at the idea. (yes, we know your secrets!)

Realizing this was an opportunity socking us squarely between the eyes, we decided to add one more wrinkle: use the buzz to raise awareness and funds for charities we love! We want to help save some rainforests and help educate some kids.

Day 16 of #MongolRally2017
5760 kms traveled so far
50/200 kids sponsored!!! We are at 1/4th of our goal, thanks to all of your donations and sharing! We are se...eking tax deductible donations to send kids in rural India to school instead of to work. Help at http://happyharriet.co

After a LOT of waiting and uncertainty, and a bit of bad blood, we are getting on a ferry to Turkmenistan. We load after the cargo trucks. The travel time is technically 18 hours, but depending on weather and how busy the Turkmenbashi port is, it might be 5 days before we unload the car (and ourselves) off the boat. Then past the notoriously slow customs (Zootopia Sloth slow), and then max 5 days in Turkmenistan where we are roumered to have no access to social media (or maybe even internet). Maybe it's all just boogeyman stories and I'll be back badgering you tomorrow. Who knows. Until then, we are going dark. Radio silence commencing in 3...2....1

Our fundraising is not going into radio silence though, so please continue to share http://happyharriet.co and help us send 150 more kids to school. 🙏🏽
