    This fundraiser will benefit

    Shahnawaz

    from Ahmedabad

I am a proud teacher of 40 amazing and talented 7th Graders. I finished my bachelors with Food Technology and Management from National Institute of Food Technology Entrepreneurship and Management in 2017. While my training at Nestle, in the countryside area of Una, I realised how much I like being on grounds and teaching young minds who are waiting to tap on their potential. I joined Teach For India fellowship in Ahmedabad and started teaching beside the largest dump yard of the state. It has been 2 years working with various stakeholders in education, every moment has been amazing.

I recently got selected as one of the 300 delegates from all over the world for the very reputed HPAIR (The Harvard Project for Asian & International Relations) - Harvard College Conference which is at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA from 15 Februaury,2019 to 18 February,2019.

I've been bearing expenses of my past events on my own, hence this is my first crowdfunding campaign and I seek your help in making my efforts reap fruits.
The Harvard College Conference is truly going to serve as the gateway for my dreams and is definitely going to be a door for my future endeavors in the field of education and sustainable development.
I'd highly appreciate any contribution made for this, be it very small. I will return the gratitude with my skills, ideas and many shoutouts during my stay at Boston and also during my traveling. You can reach out to me on email(hmsk0194@gmail.com)/ WhatsApp (+91 7009901885) or comment for any queries.

I would take this opportunity to connect with you and share my background. Apart from pursuing my bachelors in Food Technology and Management, I have adopted 3 villages across Punjab and Himachal to foster food value addition and entrepreneurial support. I am planning to launch my start up on developing and bridging gaps in volunteer engagements in April this year. Taking you through my journey:

I will be more than happy to guide you and share the learning from my journey.
Brief overview of HPAIR (The Harvard Project for Asian & International Relations) - Harvard College 2019 : "Asia’s astounding growth over the past decade has not been without challenges. Solutions to sustainable development remain elusive; alarming human rights abuses against women, refugees, and the LGBTQ community remain unanswered; rising wealth inequality, catalyzed by globalization, remain unaddressed. The 2019 HPAIR Harvard College Conference will offer a platform to cooperatively confront these emerging challenges in Asia through dialogue and exchange that transcend geographical and cultural borders."
