While the lockdown norms may have eased, not everyone has a job to sustain their families. People who earn their livelihood as daily wage labourers, run small shops in their community, work as support staff in the offices or work as house helps, drivers, electricians etc. have had it worse. Several of our ‘didis and bhaiyas’, who have looked after our well being since the day we stepped into the school, hail from these communities. With the lack of employment for spouses and other family members owing to COVID-19, it has been particularly challenging for them.
We, the students of Shiv Nadar School, Noida, as the responsible citizens of this nation, consider it our responsibility to work towards empowering the communities that make us who we are. It is with this belief that each one of us can be the change, we have set out to raise support for the neighbouring communities of Chhaprauli and Mangrouli (villages in sector 168, Noida).

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET
To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall get a report from NGO telling me who benefitted from the funding. The details will then be posted on the UPDATES section of my campaign. As soon as I post an update, the platform will send an EMAIL alert to all the funders - i.e. to you. Click on the link on the email and you can read about who benefitted.
When do I get the receipts?
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.
