    This fundraiser will benefit

    Ratchanya Vanarajan

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

Hello, I am Shivani Desai from Mumbai, India. Over the last 7+ years of working in the social sector in India, I have had the opportunity to engage with some amazing social entrepreneurs in the country. One of them is Vanarajan Swamidoss. Vana, as we fondly call him, is the founder of Manitham Charitable Trust ( - an organisation working for the social inclusion of socially-excluded communities through education and empowerment of children. This campaign is to support Vana's daughter, Ratchanya, to meet her expenses for higher education.

A little about Ratchanya's journey in her own words.

"Hello everyone. My name is Ratchanya V. I am 24-years old, and a final year LLB student at Bishop Cotton Women's Christian Law College, Bengaluru. I have been admitted to a one-year Masters of Law in Intellectual Property and Trade Law program (academic year 2021-22) at Christ University, Pune Lavasa Campus, for which I am seeking your support.

I was born and raised in Madurai (Tamil Nadu) into a nuclear family. My father always encouraged my brother and I to read, and so I grew up reading a lot of stories, including stories of injustice. This, coupled with my observations of my father's social work, inculcated in me a love for two things - Language and Law. I consider these two of the most powerful instruments of change in society.

I followed my first calling post 12th grade, and pursued a BA in English Language and Literature at Madras Christian College in 2015. I then followed my second calling by pursuing LLB in 2018. I am now standing at an exciting juncture to pursue LLM that will take me a step further to my dream ambition of becoming a Judge in India, and enabling long-lasting social change in India.  

Unfortunately, my family has exhausted most of our resources in tuition fees, and therefore I am seeking financial support for the remaining amount of INR 1 lakh. This will help me meet my boarding expenses of INR 80,000, and book expenses of INR 10,000, amongst other miscellaneous expenses that I will incur throughout the one-year period.

Thank you all so very much for your support. I will be eternally grateful."
