We are Team Isabella's global (Previously known as Brilliant Kids) established in Dec 2012. It is a story of a determined lady and her search for a perfect daycare preschool for her baby girl 'Isabella' so that she can restart her career. This is her story; a story of a Daughter, a Wife, a Mother and a Dreamer 'Himani Desai'.
Like any other small-town girl, she too came to this beautiful city of Pune with lots of dreams, studied here, got a job, got married, became a mother to a beautiful girl whom she named Isabella. After becoming a mother, she decided to put her career on hold and look after her daughter. When her daughter a little older, she decided to give wings back to her career again. She could not find a day-care where she can drop her daughter safely and work without worrying about her. Believing this was a problem faced by many, she decided to open a day-care. The day-care started in a small flat and she single-handedly went on a door to door with her daughter in one hand and the Day-care pamphlets etc in the other.
Every enrolment was a new motivation for her and a new brick added to her dream. She then got together a dedicated staff of teacher and nannies. This made Isabella's Global Team 'We' rather than 'She'. As a team, we started to look for bigger dreams and the goal of building a school exclusive for Girls. A school 'Of the woman' 'For the woman' 'By the woman' in all true sense.
Everything was going as per the plan, but then the Covid pandemic struck and the nation went into lockdown. We own the school building land and we are looking for support for infrastructure development to go ahead with our exclusive girls' school Plan.
Our dream project ‘Isabella’s Global Girls School’ is affiliated with CBSE and will have provision for free education to girls Child (15% reserved seats and free education) belonging to ‘widows and single mothers, Separated Mothers, and Mothers working in Defence and Police services. The sustainability of the program is going to be through the kids enrolled from another well to do families in our school. We eagerly want to share the idea and project with the good people out here and are looking forward to getting essential support from their side.

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET
To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall upload updates on the progress of the school. This will be posted on the UPDATES section of my campaign. As soon as we post an update, the platform will send an EMAIL alert to all the funders - i.e. to you. That's transparent right?
Will we get to know the details of how the money is spent?
Yes. After the campaign ends, the funds will be transferred by Fueladream to Isabella School. I shall upload updates on the progress of the school. This will be posted on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about how the funds have been used.
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.
