This initiative is a campaign by me and my fellow students at Chirec to raise funds to provide quality education to children in need. All the funds collected from this initiative will go to Abhyasa Vidyalayam which is a school run by the Deepa Memorial Trust located in Vijayawada. The trust is a non-profit and any funding has tax benefits. They currently provide education to around 250 students of which about 40% students are from economically challenged families. They have classes from Lower KG to the 10th grade.
The objective is to raise funds for these needy children and transform their lives.
Most private schools are too expensive for the common people to access while most non-profit schools don’t provide quality education. This is where Abhyasa Vidyalayam stands out. They believe that education is a fundamental right of every child, and academic institutions must owe to provide good quality education in real spirit.The curriculum and the methodology are directed by the principle that the child should experience the joy of learning. And the program is absolutely stress-free. The school is making a big impact on the lives of its students and the results are there for all to see, the alumni are now attending reputed universities and doing very well.
The school is struggling to run. The students who can afford pay, others pay partially and about 40% of them are unable to pay anything at all. For INR 20,000 we can sponsor a needy student for one year.
- Tuition Fee 16,000
- 3 Pairs of School uniforms 2,500
- Books and stationery 1,500
Abhyasa Vidyalayam has a very unique teaching model. We use less books, less homework, encourage discovery & creativity to teach children. This leads to students who are more self-aware of their strengths and likes. These children then become better people and better citizens.
Outlined below are two stories of students who come from economically stressed families and how they now have charted careers for themselves. We want you to fund students like this so that we can create more SILPA’s and MOHAN’s
ABOUT ME AND THIS CAMPAIGN:
Hi, I am Rohan Rudraraju of Class 12 B at the Chirec International School in Hyderabad. . I love football and I am an avid fan of FC Barcelona.
I recently visited Abhyasa Vidyalayam and was impressed with the school. I truly felt the school was making a big positive impact on the lives of the students and was inspired to help in any way I could .
From my research I felt crowd funding would be the best way to raise funds for a cause. I spoke Ms Katyayini the co-coordinator at our school about it, and with my mother's help also reached out to Fueladream management.
Everyone came on board and then representatives from Fueladream.com came down to our school and told us about crowdfunding & how that can be used to help . We learnt a lot about how we could use technology to do contribute meaningfully and how could leverage it to bring ideas to life.
The fact that an amount of just Rs.20000 can transform the life of someone made me feel like I must do something about it.
This kids for kids initiative is bringing my friends together in an interesting way, it's helping us connect, become more aware , learn and bond. The fact that together we can do so much good is empowering.
Please support my campaign and let us together bring hope and a bright future to a child.
Grateful for your support.

It takes upto 2-3 weeks after the campaign is closed for the monies to be transferred to the 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 a 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
