DID YOU KNOW?
TARA Akshar+ is a highly efficient and sophisticated miracle literacy program that focuses on imparting literacy (in Hindi) and basic arithmetic to women who cannot read and write in rural as well as urban spaces. The curriculum is robust, equips women with skills to read, write and engage meaningfully with the written text. Additionally, edutainment and informative sessions are also held to bridge the gap between acquired literacy and its practical application in their lives.

My name is Zeenat Niazi.
This campaign aims to transform the lives of illiterate women in rural areas by helping them learn Hindi and Mathematics. While all of us complain about how things around us need to improve, very few of us actually get to do something about it. It’s all talk and no action. When I think about how I would live a day in my life if I could not read or write, I shudder.
I have undertaken this campaign because I think empowering women, especially those from economically backward families has a massive impact on the entire family dynamics. It will transform their lives and the lives of future generations. These women will now be able to be more confident and take on responsibilities that they would normally shy away from like shopping, reading etc.
Please support my campaign and let us together transform the lives of these women.

FEEDBACK THAT YOU GET:
To ensure that there is complete transparency I shall get a report from NGO (this takes between 1 to 3 months usually after the funds are raised and 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 EMAIL alert to all the funders - i.e. to you. Click on the link on the email and you can read about which woman 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 the Society For Development Alternatives. We will update you on the details of the beneficiaries as soon as possible. Once we get this information we shall upload a report on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert and can read details about the beneficiaries.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept and 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 and 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 and you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
