Donations for a new scooter for social welfare activities - Bundelkhand, India!

<p>About 7 years ago, a truly fantastic adventure was starting for me, a long long journey, which took me to a country I have always loved, Mother India !!</p> <p>India won my heart, pushed me to my limits, and also awakened in me the desire for deeper engagement.<br /> I became dedicated to selflessly serving the lowest strata of society.</p> <p>My reward and my salary came in the form of smiles, conversations, endless gratitude, bursts of laughter and many realizations which kept me passionate and alive.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>I also learnt detachment from the material, living in one of the most backward parts of India.</p> <p>Bundelkhand, where the holy city of Chitrakoot lies, suffers from critical environmental and hygiene conditions as a result of draught and water scarcity.</p> <p>I started by documenting this reality, and now here I am, collaborating with organizations, diverse administrations and local personalities, for the sake of villagers, whose trust it has taken me many years and endless cups of shared chai to gain. Now I can work with long term aims and goals in mind.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p>

Allocation of funds

<p>Actions that have already been initiated are:<br /> - A rural outreach <strong>medical project </strong>for an american NGO<br /> - Donation/distribution of <strong>material of primary needs</strong> in a selection of villages<br /> - Equipment and <strong>stationery for extremely remote</strong> and precarious <strong>educational centres</strong>.<br /> - The making of <strong>qualitative content through videos</strong>, pictures and detailed ground level reports, in order to make <strong>advocacy cases</strong> for communities (Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes)&nbsp; and <strong>link them with local administration</strong> (all topics linked to basics needs like water access, hygiene etc).<br /> - implementation of <strong>supplementation programs</strong> (based on nutritious and natural local resources, superfoods etc) in some schools where malnutrition is rampant.<br /> - The implementation of <strong>technical projects</strong> with participation of specialists, workshops for e.g. a zero cost DIY version of closed oven, natural farmings good practices; awareness program about pollution and environmental issues, seeds banks creation, rain water harvesting programs.<br /> - The creation of <strong>high value processed local resources </strong>likely to support women on their path towards sustainability and financial independence (moringa powder, pure aloe vera gel, natural herbal soaps...)<br /> - The help for creation of <strong>women self help groups</strong> to enable them to know their Rights, support access to information and to better living conditions (hygiene, health, literacy)<br /> - The management of a few <strong>heavy medical cases</strong> located in the project area (coordination of medical follow up, surgery, hospital visit, medication etc)<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>I want to carry on these actions efficiently and independently. A minimum of basic infrastructure is necessary for that !<br /> Last year, my bag (my house!) with all my electronic material for documenting and working was stolen and so I renewed it at the minima from my resources. This year, to top it up, my scooter was also stolen on the field...</p> <p>Because I really need one in such a deep rural zone and have no sufficient resources to get it on my own, I decided this time to call for donations and your generosity ! Also a super cool opportunity for you to support ground level actions through me and the small NGO that I collaborate with !</p> <p>So dear friends, I am in your hands !<br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>Notes </strong>:<br /> 1. Of course, when I don&#39;t get use of the scooter, it will be at the disposal of others social workers of NGO Akhil Bhartiya Samaj Seva Sansthan. with whom I collaborate now closely - here are a few useful links if you wish to dig the subject :<br /> Facebook page : <a href="" target="_blank"></a><br /> And its website : <a href="" target="_blank"></a><br /> 2. I am committed&nbsp; to communicate the detailed amount of the donations and the use of its.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
