Raising funds for outreach work in Ahmedabad


In December 2018 I will be going to Ahmedabad, India as part of DMU Square Mile India's outreach programme.

I will be volunteering at Gandhi Ashram, the Loving Community and a number of other community centres, working with the community there and DMU ALUMNI & STUDENTS to support in improving their lives. 

DMU Square Mile have done groundbreaking work in Ahmedabad where we initially supported 120 children in the Gandhi Ashram providing them with food, shelter and medical supplies. The project has now expanded exponentially to include a number of other community centres who are also receiving support from us.

We have set up educational facilities, improved sanitation systems and employment prospects and your funds will go directly towards doing more of this! We have worked with shunned communities at the bottom of the caste system, set up educational provisions for child labourers, supported in creating shelter and continue to push boundaries with the aim to be inclusive and improve living conditions and prospects, one community centre at a time.

I am crowdfunding £500 which will go directly towards the project and the work we will be doing on the ground. Your funds will be used by DMU Square Mile on a range of projects in Ahmedabad i.e. school provisions, medicinal needs and shelter. 

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I have been doing charity work for a while now. I hope you trust me to know that I will give this trip and the people of Ahmedabad my all, with support from yourselves.

If you can spare a pound or more, please consider donating to this worthy cause. In return, I can promise you I will do everything I can to ensure your donation exceeds its worth.

If you cannot donate, please do share my page! Any questions - you know how to contact me.

NOTE: The way crowdfunding works is that if I do not meet my target, your funds will be returned to you.
