In a country where many young children have to drop out of school to assist their families with supplementing the family income, hoping for a state of affairs where all children can go to school and get at least their full dose of primary education is a benediction in itself. There are millions of children in India who would feel as if the moon were handed to them if only they could go to school and learn to read their native language and write their name and address in English. They do not look for too much, their dreams are simple. But this country has not yet been able to fulfill those dreams yet. With the population rising every year, India’s young population is learning better than ever before to without education and the opportunity for upward social mobility that it can bring.
Since government endowments for education, let alone accessory support for education, is not enough to skim the surface of the great need that exists in this domain, many NGOs and activists are using crowdfunding India to make education and related support available to young Indian children who could otherwise not have afforded it. Most of these organizations and changemakers spearhead short (also, usually short-term) projects, that have direct and simple goals to make change at the grassroots. An example of such a project might be to arrange for the primary education of five hundred children in a particular Indian district over four years, taking into account not only the costs of providing for their school books and stationery, but also for their mid day meal, their teachers’ salaries, their costs of commuting to and from the school, their recreational activity expenses, and the price of infrastructure (which may even include building a school room and buying basic sturdy school furniture such as desks and benches and supplies like blackboards and chalk).
The interesting thing is that just about anyone can join the ongoing crowdfunding India effort to make social change as far as lending education support to India’s children is concerned. It is easy and convenient and a commendable way of aligning yourself with a nationwide initiative of educating children who can have no access to quality education unless you choose to help them with funds. You can lend a hand to the cause of education support either by starting your own crowdfunding India fundraiser, which is a method of proactivity, or by making a donation to the fundraiser run by another person you know and trust. Running a fundraiser of your own is simpler than you think. All you have to do is start a fundraiser for free on a platform like Impact Guru, promote it on social media, ask for donations, and channel funds raised to your chosen cause.
With crowdfunding India, you can make a difference from the comfort of your own home. The children of India will remember you and in turn make a difference by leveraging the difference made by the education you get them. This is how good is done in the world in permanent ways.
