My name is Meher Gupta and I am raising funds for The Nanhi Chhaan Foundation which is working towards providing programs by which individuals as well as organizations can partake in creating sustainable solutions for issues regarding the environment, gender and safety.
For over 8 years, Nanhi Chhaan and its partners have improved the lives of lakhs of children, women and girls by providing them access to protection, basic education, proper healthcare, a healthy environment, livelihood opportunities and participation in decisions which affect their lives. Their work would not be possible without the support of funding from individuals, corporations, institutions, foundations and government agencies within India and abroad.
In particular, I am working with the Nanhi Chhaan Foundation to raise funds for the installation of solar powered street lights in the village of Fatehpur Rajputan, Amritsar. We have already installed one street light in this area - which has benefited around 150 people in the village. Through this initiative, we hope to make public spaces in the town more accessible to children in particular, by ensuring their safety and ability to maneuver along walkways and sidewalks in the evenings and nighttime.
We are now looking to scale up our initiative, and would be extremely grateful for your help!
