- Prevention of Anemia: The lack of nutritious food or regular intake of water, following unhygienic practices, not using sanitary pads are among several reasons why women's health suffers. These result in a sharp drop in hemoglobin levels and cause weakness, lesser productivity and lack of immunity.
- Girl Child Education: Even in metros like Mumbai, there are many girls who are still deprived of education because of the traditional gender bias. It then leads to poor earnings and poor livelihood and thus the cycle continues. Sanhita and Nanhi kali are the two NGOs associated with the marathon and 50% of the registration proceeds will be donated to them. You will also get to interact with the NGOs on the marathon day so you get detailed information on the causes they are working and also how you can help them not in just monetary terms.
