Fundraising to represent my country at robotic world cup. Please help me to make this dream come true!

Why am I fundraising?

I am a class 11th student of SRDAV Public school Dayanand Vihar, Delhi.
Recently i participated in a Robotics Competition, in which me and my team attained the first position in Delhi-NCR region. The competition was also held in Chennai and Mumbai. In the end,we turned out to be the National champions.
Now we have qualified for the next level, i.e The Vex World Championship which is going to be held in Louisville, USA from 15-18 April 2015. We will be representing India in the same.
But the competition organizers have refused to sponsor our trip.
I come from a lower middle class family. My parents cannot afford to send me to USA to represent India.
I request you to kindly help me in the same. It's my dream to represent India at the World's. Please help me make my dream come true.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

The Organisers have told us that the total expenditure will be around Rs. 1,25,000 per person. It in-cludes the return fare of around Rs. 60 thousand + Rs. 30-40 thousand + Visa charges which includes the Registartion Fee and the Accomodation charges. Your small Contribution means a lot.


The world championship is in Louisville,USA. The Return ticket to Louisville is around Rs. 90,000. But the Return ticket to new york Rs. 60,000 , So we are planning to travel to new york first and then travel to louisville by bus. It would save us around Rs. 25,000.
Please help me make my dream come true.
