Hope you and your families are safe and healthy !
Our beloved Bishuda has been out of work since the onset of the pandemic, and has been surviving on your generosity alone. His livelihood was solely dependent on his shop at XLRI. Given the situation it might take another year for him to open his shop in XL. Several alums had expressed the need to find a more durable solution for him in his village rather than raising funds for him periodically. He is planning to open a dhaba in his village for which he needs to purchase land as there are no options of taking anything on rent.
In the attachment you can see the exact location of the dhaba he is planning.
Address: VILLAGE- KANPUR,P.O-KANPUR SOLBONI, P.S-BELIABERAH,DIST-JHARGRAM. PIN-721517
We have managed to raise Rs. 1,41,000 through direct transfers. However, on the suggestions of some alums the campaign has been shifted to milaap to widen the reach of the campaign. Through the milaap platform we need to raise Rs. 4,08,500 to complete the total target of Rs. 5.5 needed for the land+ construction cost. The land will cost 3lakhs and the construction cost plus the initial minimum working capital required will amount approximately to 2.5 lakhs.
Bishuda is extremely grateful for all the help he has received till now from the Xlers. Lets please show him again that he is one of us and we take care of our own!!!
