The Australian government and Pat Farmer support the girl child. The following is a message from the Australian Consulate General:
The Australian Consulate General in Mumbai has provided a grant of A$20,870 through the Direct Aid Program to the K.C. Mahindra Trust’s Project Nanhi Kali to provide academic, social and material support to 6192 disadvantaged girls in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
The Australian Government welcomes Pat Farmer’s efforts to also raise funds for the Nanhi Kali initiative through his Spirit of India Run.
The Australian Government has been delighted to support Pat’s 4600km India run, an inspiring endeavour aimed at strengthening people-to-people ties between our two countries and educating girls in India.
