SHORT HILLS, NJ - A trio of brothers from Short Hills are working to make sure that those less fortunate in India will have the education they deserve.
The Kapur Brothers, Dhruv, Rohan, and Arjun Kapur are continuing their mission this year to help underprivileged kids in India. with their annual collection drive for The Akanksha Organization.
The Akanksha Organization is a non-profit based in India whose mission is to provide children from low-income communities with a high-quality education, according to the boys. The group hopes that the skills will enable the children to maximize their potential and transform their lives. This will be the Kapur brothers' fifth year helping out the organization.
As in previous years, the boys are asking for new and used school supplies. A new item that the boys will look for this year at the request of the schools in India is board games. The end goal of that collection is to provide entertainment for the students during their lunch breaks. New and used games will both be accepted.
All donated items will be delivered by the Kapur brothers to the schools this summer, where Millburn High School Freshman Dhruv Kapur is also scheduled to teach Math, English, Reading and Sport Fundamentals to elementary school children in Mumbai.
The collection takes place throughout the year, but the Kapur borthers are hoping to get most of their items donated by Friday, June 7.
Residents interested in contributing school supplies or board games can email the brothers and make contact at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
