Why am I fundraising?For the past seven years, we have been advocating for the right of education to children in rural Karnataka.
We have worked for children in Gauribidanur Taluk, in the villages of Chandanaduru ,Shravanahally, Hampsandra, Hanaghahali and Shembukanagar.
We have realized that a great obstacle for the children to study is the lack of power(electricity).
We believe, we can bring a change in the lives of the children by providing Solar lights.
"Light the Future" wants to help children to have the opportunity to study even when there is no power. A child who studies breaks the cycle of poverty and empowers himself/herself for a better tomorrow.
Children of these villages comes to our programme at Chandanaduru Village where they are helped with tuition and a nutritious meal.
Thus providing one solar light per household will be the first step towards the empowerment of these children.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
The funds will be used to purchase solar lights. The cost of a solar light is Rs.2,500.
We are planning to distribute 200 solar lights to 200 households. thus many children of our Gauribidanur taluk in Chikkabalapur district can be benefited.
