Kanyathon 2020, the 9th edition of an event being organized by the students of the IFIM Group of Institutions in association with CRY (Child Rights and You) is a charity fundraiser being held on 1st March 2020. It is an annual charity run hosted in partnership with the CRY Foundation – whose vision is to protect and honor the dignity, justice, and equity of every child. The underlying purpose of this run is to address those issues that hinder the growth and progress of female children in our country. The 'Run for her' is a platform where we can show those deprived children that we as a society are really committed to improving their lives. We are proud to share that all funds collected so far have impacted families and villages. Kanyathon 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 helped in 3,03,222 children going back to school, 1820 villages were made child – labor free, 19021 children were immunized, and 13,330 children have been protected from malnutrition. Rs. 22 lakhs have been donated to CRY in the last four years with Rs. 12 lakhs alone from Kanyathon 2019. The 2019 funds will be directed towards our Shiksha Aadhar program as well as to aid the five villages adopted by IFIM in the Kolar district under the government’s Unnat Bharat Abhiyan scheme. These villages are Settiganahalli, Mylandahalli, Gangapura, Thirumalakoppa, and Koothandahalli. Both Shiksha Aadhar and the Kolar village program will be managed by CRY and students will also extend their help in Kolar through IFIM’s Social Internship Program (SIP).
