I was introduced to crowdfunding thanks to the talk at our school and found it very interesting. The fact that storytelling, technology, and social media can come together to do good and make a social impact fascinated me.
When I was told about the Ekal Vidyalaya initiative, it seemed unbelievable. Imagine funding an entire school for a year at just INR 22000. This includes the cost of a teacher, study material and costs of managing the program. The fact that there are 86000 plus schools like this across the country doing such wonderful work came as a big surprise to me.
