    This fundraiser will benefit

    Migrant Families

    from Akbarpur Kanpur Dehat, Uttar Pradesh

  • We are a group of students of IIT Kanpur who felt the never-ending pain of migrant families and want to contribute our part using our social as well as entrepreneurial skills.
  • Among the major section of migrant families, only the men have chosen to travel back to cities after the announcement of relaxations in the nationwide lockdown, leaving their wives, children, and the rest of the family in their hometowns.
  • To help these families sustain and have a better future, we present “Project AashRay” which aims to empower these women and children and make a positive impact on their lives.

  • We have partnered with an NGO “Shramik Bharti”, working to educate small and marginal farmers about “zero budget natural farming”, and plan to develop 10 Organic Vegetable Gardens to support the livelihood and nutritional needs of 10 COVID-19 hit families of Migrant Workers, in 5 villages of Akabarpur Block in Kanpur Dehat districts of Uttar Pradesh.
  • Our project aims to empower the women and children of migrant families and make a positive impact on their lives. 
  • We want to help them overcome this situation of crisis and provide them with an ecological and sustainable solution to the social and economical crisis they are facing through entrepreneurship. Setup of kitchen gardens will eventually make them economically independent and more prepared for a crisis like this. 
  • Apart from saving a minimum of Rs.1000 per month from the vegetables consumed in the family, each beneficiary family can easily make Rs. 3000 per month as additional cash income from the sale of excess vegetables.
