Tulu Patnaik memorial fund raiser | Orissa Fan Club

My wife Akanksha and I have been associated with the cause of fundraising and installing fans in schools located in rural districts of Orissa for the last 2 years. Helping us in this effort is Biswajit Patnaik, a wildlife conservationist by profession who travels extensively in the regions we target. Through his work he identifies schools with working electricity connections but without any fans in the classroom. As a result this leads to extremely harsh conditions for the children especially in the summer months. Over the last 3 fund raisers we have procured & installed more than 100 fans in around 17 schools in the Hindol block of Orissa.

This year's fund raiser is even more special to me as it's being run to honour the memory of my late father Mr. Tulu Patnaik. Those of you who knew him know that he was an extremely caring and a generous man. He often donated generously to our fundraisers (Which we lovingly call the Fan club) and we couldnt think of a better way to honour his memory as we approach his birthday on 14th March. Our target is to raise INR 1 Lakh which will cover the procurement & installation of ~100 fans to cover ~15 schools in the Dhenkanal district of Orissa. As the harsh summer months loom I invite all of you to donate generously to make the lives of our next generation a little more comfortable. Remember, no donation is too small.

In these tough times, I thought I might share some news to cheer you up a little. As some of you may know we ran a fundraiser campaign in memory of my late father Tulu Patnaik. From the funds we raised we planned to install approximately 200 fans in schools in rural Orissa. We were able to procure and install ~50 fans before the lockdown was initiated from contributions from my family. We will now install the remaining fans from the funds raised via this fundraiser. The funds will be transferred to Biswajit Mohanty (referenced in the fundraiser introduction) who tirelessly works to procure these fans and ensures installation in the tribal schools identified. In the interim, I wanted to share a few pictures from this exercise undertaken before the lockdown and once again thank all who contributed and help share the campaign. Stay Safe.

Dear supporters
We have made great progress thanks to the generous contributions of this great community of friends and family. Keeping in mind that we have already hit ~89% of the original target I thought we can raise the bar a little and try to see if we can raise 1.5 Lakh for this noble cause.
