Help me find an NGO

Previously I had blogged about the new series of paintings that I am working on and how I would donate 20% of the sale proceeds to an NGO of my choice. You can read the blog here.

There have been developments on that front, I have finally managed to get a gallery for the exhibition and I would have the exhibition in May. I will be exhibiting at the Bajaj Art Gallery at Nariman Point in Mumbai from 18th May to 24th May 2011. The exhibition will be called "Windmills of Hope" - an apt name for an exhibition that supports a cause of education for underprivileged children.

While most of my paintings are moving towards completion, one of the major things to be decided upon is selection of the NGO. I have taken help from my friend @fundacause for this task. In response to an earlier post that she had written on her blog, I received many responses from NGOs. However, the task of selecting the appropriate NGO was easier said than done. After wracking my brains for some time on this, I request for help from all my readers. 

Please help me select an NGO by reviewing requests that we have received for this cause on @fundacause's blog.

Your comments and feedback will be appreciated. Looking forward to your support.

Hi,
This is great! You can consider your donating your proceeds to Nanhi Kali. Project Nanhi Kali was initiated in 1996 by the K C Mahindra Education Trust (KCMET) with the aim of providing primary education to underprivileged girl children in India.

Thanks,
