Support my higher education at Oxford

Ask for an update


Hello everyone,

My name is Muktai Panchal. Thank you for visiting my crowdfunding page. I am from Mumbai, India. I have been accepted into the prestigious Oxford University's Blavatnik School of Government to pursue Master of Public Policy programme. Only 120 students are selected for this programme from all over the world and I am extremely delighted to have gotten this opportunity to enhance my knowledge and capabilities.

I am currently working with a non-governmental organization and my role involves being a Technical Advisor to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. Since last 4 years, I have been specifically working on Tuberculosis Elimination from India, a disease which kills 1400 Indians every single day and is devasting for lakhs of families. I have more than 5 years of work experience in the social sector and I also taught children from underserved communities as a Teach For India fellow.

After completion of my Master's programme, I would be returning back to India so that I can keep working towards serving my country.  It is a one year programme and it would cost me roughly Rs. 60 lakhs (Rs. 40 lakhs for tuition fees and Rs. 20 lakhs for travel & living expenses). I come from a humble middle-class family and I would be covering my fees partially by the student loan. For the remaining amount, I require your support.

So far, I have worked really hard to come up in life. I have started my journey from a Marathi medium school in Mumbai and have gotten opportunities purely based on my merit. One day, I would like to pay it forward and support some deserving students from India to pursue their dreams just like how you are supporting mine.

Lastly, I sincerely thank you for your support and I will be forever grateful for your kindness! I would also love to send a hand-written 'Thank You' note to you (if you share your email ID) as a small token of my immense gratitude :)
