    This fundraiser will benefit

    Women Street Vendors from the Federation of Street Vendor Unions in Bangalore.

    from Bangalore, Karnataka


Hello,

Thank you for your interest in my fundraiser. This festive season, I want to help 200 women entrepreneurs in Bangalore city. These are women with whom you and I interact with on a daily basis. Yet, their voices and needs are largely unnoticed in the planning and development mechanisms of big cities like Bangalore. 

During the year's festive season, I hope to facilitate better working conditions for these champion women street vendors  in Bangalore. These women toil all day and night in order to bring us the freshest vegetables, flowers and many other daily essentials. This will only be possible with your support.

I have been interacting with Bengaluru Jilla Beedhi Vyaapari Sanghatanegala Okkuta (Federation of Street Vendor Unions in Bangalore District) to shortlist 200 women street vendors. Together, with your support I hope to provide them with solar lighting systems for their carts. This will ensure that they have clean and green lighting along with facilities like mobile charging. Further more, it will enhance productivity and bring transformation in their lives. 

Each of these Portable Light(Po-Lite) systems have been designed by me, taking inputs from the street vendors themselves. 

For 1500 INR / 25$ you can empower one woman entrepreneur. 

For 3000 INR / 50$ you can empower two women entrepreneurs.

For 4500 INR / 75$ you can empower three women entrepreneurs.

Please join me during this festive season to help bring a smile on their faces by contributing to my campaign and also help me spread the word around. 

Remember, if you empower a woman, you also empower her family. 

Thank you, 
Aakarsh Shamanur.
