I am fundraising for purchasing land to expand hostel facility for 200 students!

Why am I fundraising?

I am trying to raise funds for Purkal Youth development Society. Purkal is a 15 year old school which is located in the Himalayan footfills of Dehradun. Purkal currently provides education to about 300 underprivileged kids. They offer more than a mere learning platform. They take end to end responsibility of the students alcademic, nutritional and medical needs.  They bagged the India NGO Award in 2011. 

They are currently looking at purchasing a piece of land for the constuction of a hostel which would help in providing residential facility to 200 more underprivileged children. Your contribution will help Purkal in the purchase of the land and in meeting the cost of construction.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

This fund will help Purkal purchase a piece of land worth Rs. 35,00,000 in Purkal village, Dehradun. Purkal plans to expand the existing facility to accomodate 200 more students by construction of a new hostel on this piece of land.  Of the total cost of land acquisition and construction, I am trying to help them raise Rs. 15,00,000.


Purkal was founded in 1998 by Mr. G.K.Swamy. It is located in Purkal village, Dehra dun.  The Purkal Youth Development Society is a registered charity dedicated to enhancing the lives of underprivileged children.

As you are aware we at PYDS, admit the poorest, deserving and meritorious students and give them an opportunity to excel. Our experience of over 10 years helped us understand that excellence cannot be achieved unless we give these poor children who do not have a proper Home, a Hostel where they can put in serious study after School. It is in this context that we were attempting to buy a piece of land that could permit the construction of two Hostel buildings, one for the girls and another for boys.
It is for this purpose that we approached you and you had set up the Milaap Campaign.
Our intention was to purchase 4000 square yards of land to provide residential facilities for 200 underprivileged children. The down payment for the proposition was estimated to cost us USD 250,000/-. The campaigns however did not fetch the amount desired but we still need to provide the facilities to the students, the girls to begin with.
We therefore decided to use our present land and construct a hostel for a limited number and this only for girls. This structure has now made progress and we have spent nearly Rs. 20 Lacs (USD 33,340) on it. We are hoping to make progress and complete it early. There is still a significant gap in the collections required and we are finding ways of collecting these monies.
A few photographs of the building under construction are enclosed
It is in this context that we are proposing to use your contribution to complete this hostel building. We seek your permission to use it for this purpose. Your contribution will meet the same purpose that you originally intended, namely the provision of Hostel for girls, but in a different location.
Your generous contribution will help us bridge the gap and help us complete this current construction. We do hope that we have your consent for this change in the proposed use of your contribution.
