I am a proud son of a Government employee. I did my MBA from NIT Rourkela. I recently got selected as one of the 300 delegates from all over the world for the very reputed HPAIR (The Harvard Project for Asian & International Relations) - Harvard College Conference which will be held from February 14 to 17 at Massachusetts, USA!

Assigned track: Geopolitical and Governance (only a few people are selected for this. )
Other tracks are:-
1. Art Media & Culture  
2. Energy and Environmental Sustainability  
3. Good Markets & The Economy
4. Science & Technology  
5. Social Polity & Justice
6. Science & Technology

The HPAIR team itself strongly recommends all Delegates to begin fundraising and to be creative and open-minded during fundraising activity.  This is my first crowdfunding campaign and I seek your help in making my efforts reap fruits.

About HPAIR :
The Harvard College Project for Asian and International Relations was founded to create a forum of exchange for students and young professionals to discuss and learn about the most important economic, political, and social issues facing Asia. ⁣Since 1991, HPAIR has organized 55 conferences in 12 different host countries, touching the lives of more than 32,000 students and young professionals.

Conferences have drawn many top-tier political leaders such as former President of the Republic of Korea Kim Dae-Jung, Crown Prince of Perak Raja Nazrin Shah, Finance Minister of the Republic of the Philippines Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, and President of Singapore S. R. Nathan. The former Foreign Minister of the Republic of Korea and the current Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon has spoken at an HPAIR conference.
HPAIR has been a dream for me since the past two years and being selected to this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me. I do not want financial hurdles to stop me from attending this conference.

I'd highly appreciate any contribution made for this, be it very small, Also, I'd love to personally thank you for donations if you provide your address via email ( WhatsApp (+91 8770557810) or comment. Please send your donations directly to my account via UPI 8982878819@upi.

Sharing a bit about my background, apart from pursuing a Master of Business Administration, I am associated with SOS Bal Gram where we teach school students. I am also highly involved in Co Circular Activities at my college.
If I get succeed to attend the Conference, I'll be sharing all my learnings and experience from the Conference through a common platform and International contacts and networks I could make there will be helpful to all of my sponsors in one or the other way. And also would like to sponsor somebody in need in the near future!
