    This fundraiser will benefit

    Smriti

    from Hyderabad, Telangana

My name is Smriti Marar and I run an NGO known as 'Project WE (women empowerment)' that works on empowering financially lesser privileged girls of ages 16 and above.

My initiative encourages them to pursue further education and vocational training by conducting classes that teach English, Personal Finance, Computers, Self-care (personal hygiene, proper nutrition, mental health) and Self-development (goal setting, public speaking, etc). This year 25 girls successfully graduated from my NGO and I acquired batches of 75 more girls before Covid-19 struck.

While I am unable to teach these girls due to the current situation, I still want their learning to advance; else I know we will lose out on all the efforts so far initiated. I, therefore, have come up with the idea of conducting online classes for them through the means of pre-recorded classroom videos.
The obstacle I encounter here, however, is giving these girls a way to view my videos. As they hail from underprivileged backgrounds, they do not have access to any devices or an internet connection at their homes. This is where I seek your help.

I am raising funds to purchase smartphones, equipped with a sim card and earphones, that these girls can use to interact with me and watch my pre-recorded classroom videos on. I request you to please donate to my fundraising campaign and enable these girls to continue learning and flourishing.

To ensure that these smartphones are utilised correctly and effectively by my girls, I am loading these videos onto an offline platform. Additionally, I am in the process of incentivising their learning process through quizzes and prizes, to keep them engaged until the very end. Furthermore, I shall be checking in with these girls on a weekly basis to ensure they are on track with everything.
