    This fundraiser will benefit

    Kapadwanj Kelavani Mandal

    from Kapadvanj, Gujarat

80G tax benefits for INR donations

I am an 11th grader studying at Singapore International school, Mumbai. As someone passionate about issues from supporting menstrual hygiene to renewable energy, I am launching Project Umeed as a small initiative to contribute towards causes I believe in. I am excited to join hands with the Kapadvanj Kelavni Mandal in raising financial contribution of Rs.5,00,000 to fund two projects, the Sanitary Pad Vending Machines and incinerators (disposal units), and Roof Top Solar Panels as a part of their Green Energy initiative.
Sanitary Pad vending machines - In many rural and semi-urban areas, school girls are unable to get access to sanitary pads, either due to affordability, shyness, or lack of proper education often impacting their school attendance. Vending machines will not only enable girls access to sanitary napkins, who might otherwise be conscious of buying the pads from the market, but also send a positive message that the schools are sensitive to their needs. Such machines improve health, provide better quality pads and will also result in better attendance in schools. Each vending machine will range between 5000 -7000 and each disposal unit costs 15000-20000.
Roof Top Solar Panels. With the growing use of technology and devices, it is essential that we reap the benefits of solar power for schools. School facilities are excellent candidates for solar conversion, particularly large campuses spread out over a wide geographic area. Solar panels can not only offset monthly electricity bills but also save resources that can be utilized towards other expenditures. With a larger installation, it may even be possible to switch to 100% renewable energy. In addition, solar energy in schools presents a great teaching opportunity that can enrich classroom content with real-world examples of the benefits of renewable energy.  
I ask for your generous support with a donation of any amount to help us get these projects off the ground.  Please reach out to me (hiyagandhi2005@gmail.com) if you have any questions or need additional information on the projects.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.
