An estimated 2 lakh children under the age of 15 suffer from HIV in India. At the 'Rays- Asha Ki Ek Kiran' orphanage in Jaipur HIV+ kids are provided a home, meals, medical aid and formal education. The two RAYS orphanages support over 50 HIV+ children. Every child in the RAYS family attends a regular school. The children also attend art and yoga classes and benefit from the interest.

ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN
My name is KSHITIJ DIVANSH SAXENA. I am a working professional based in Gurgaon, Haryana. I am currently employed as a product manager in the BFSI sector. I am passionate about the causes of education-for-all and wildlife conservation.
I have undertaken this campaign because I think being able to impact the lives of needy children by giving them education for a year would be incredible.
The fact that just INR 12000 can fund the education of a student for a year is something that made me want to do this even more. Please fund my campaign as your funding will have a profound impact on a child’s life. This will not just educate them but give them confidence, a livelihood, and transform their lives and their family's lives. These students come from very poor homes and many of these children lost their parents or were abandoned by their families
Let us make a difference together. The more we raise the bigger impact and transformation we can make.

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET
To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall get a report from RAYS (this takes between 2 to 3 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.
Will we get to know the details of who benefitted?
Yes. After the money has been collected it will be transferred by Fueladream to RAYS. It will take from 2 to 3 months after that to get details of fund use. Once I get this information from them I shall upload this on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the beneficiaries.
When do I get the receipts?
It takes up to 2-weeks after the campaign is closed for the monies to be transferred to NGO. 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.
