I am raising funds to transform the lives of Ortho-handicapped persons by training them in various vocational skills which would enable them to be financially self-sufficient and also to become a useful member of the society. Besides financial independence to render emotional and social support with the objective of enabling them to become part of the mainstream.
The costs to train a person on Computer Skills Course is INR 3000 for 3 months and costs to train a person in Typing skills is about INR 3000 for 6 months. This campaign aims to raise INR 51000 to help 17 people or more.
By supporting this campaign, you would help them gain the minimum skills required to be employed and thereby supporting the family too.

ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN
Hello! I am Gargi Joshi a 12th-grade student studying at Bombay Scottish School.
The rehabilitation project was started with the objective of training the handicapped in various vocational skills which would enable them to be financially self-sufficient and thereby become a useful member of society.
A majority of the students are diagnosed with poliomyelitis and the rest have been in an accident. Even though the world health organization had declared India ‘polio-free’ there are a few cases occurring in our country.
I always wanted to do something for the society and this seems like the perfect one. This campaign aims to raise INR 51000 and impact 17 people. Please support and contribute generously.

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET
To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall get a report from Matru Sewa Sangh ( this takes between 3 to 6 months usually after the funds are raised & transferred to them) telling me who benefitted from the funding. The details will then be posted on the UPDATES section of my campaign and will be in a format like the one below. As soon as I post an update, the platform will send an SMS and EMAIL alert to all the funders - i.e to you. Click on the link on the email and you can read about which child benefitted. That's transparent right.
The below info is an example of the FEEDBACK FORMAT that we will be shared with all my funders
When do I get the receipts?
It takes 2 weeks after the campaign is closed for the monies to be transferred. The receipts will start getting processed about 4 to 6 weeks AFTER the campaign is closed and will be sent to you directly.
How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds.
You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
