MoneyGram gives $100,000 support to Indian girls

Bangalore, Oct 11 (IBNS) MoneyGram (NYSE:MGI), a leading money transfer company, announced it has given $100,000 to Holt International Children's Services to support girls in India who are at risk of dropping out of school.

Holt, an international child welfare organization, sponsors the education of many children in India and other countries.

The MoneyGram gift will help subsidize Holt's program with the Vathsalya Charitable Trust (VCT) into mid-2015 and provide school uniforms, books and supplies for 300 girls at six schools: Colonel Hill High School (Bangalore); Concerns Universe Foundation (Bangalore); Koppal High School (Koppal); Muranpur School (Raichur); Raichur High School (Raichur); and St. Charles Kannada High School (Bangalore).

The check presentation at St. Charles School in Bangalore on Wednesday included Justice Santosh Hedge, former justice of the Supreme Court of India and Dr. Aloma Lobo, ex-chairperson of the Central Adoption Resource Agency, representatives from Holt International, Vathsalya Charitable Trust, the St. Charles School principal, students and their families.

"We know young female students are not attending school often because tuition, books, and uniforms are not affordable. MoneyGram is proud to support the education of these young ladies to help ensure they have the resources they need to stay in school and complete their education," said Harsh Lambah, senior regional director of MoneyGram.
