De Montfort University Rowing Club is working with DMU Square Mile India to raise money aiding their incredible and continually expanding work. Square Mile works to transform the lives of some of the poorest communities in Gujarat. Originally formed to support youngsters living in a children’s home in the Gandhi Ashram, Ahmedabad, it has since expanded and aims to work with thousands in 2019.
Our students travel to India regularly working in the community on projects that enable them to put their degree studies into practice – whether that is delivering English classes, providing free hearing screenings, teaching dance or drama, developing ways that technology could improve life for families and much more.
DMURC will be rowing 371km, the length of the Sabarmati River in India, on a single rowing machine, in 2018 this took 26 hours 40 minutes and we are looking to beat that time this year!
