Project Description: Started Chirag’s “Caring4Kidz” initiative to spread awareness about lack of educational facilities in rural India, I have also created social media campaigns, reached out to distinct family members, friends and recruited volunteers to raise donations for Mini library project.

Many young kids drop out of schools in India due to social, economic, cultural and geographical conditions. There are many kids in India who love reading. But they can’t afford to buy the books because the prices are very high, or they cannot access public libraries. I believe to change the mindsets of rural India you have to start at school, and with that thought I reached out to my friends, family and neighbors for donations to support Mini Library project along with social media promotions. I was able to raise $20,000 to set up 125 libraries in rural India.

Impact: 132 schools
