The funds will be used for educational expenses (fees, books, stationery, extra-curricular activities) so that they can flourish in their respective choice of careers. Our target fundraise is INR 171.2 lakhs. We expect to partner with schools and ed-tech startups to minimize per child spend and maximize coverage.
Our plan of action is attached below, and publicly available. An estimate of annual education expenses is also given in the same.
