  • Crowd Funding

    Exploring new avenues of funding lead “NHF and our partner “Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar” to tie up with ‘Fuel a dream’ which introduced a unique concept of crowd funding with the help of school children.

    Thus came about the tie up of Delhi Public school ( DPS) with Needy heart Foundation and RBI which helped give wings to this funding drive. Approx 50 students of DPS took it upon themselves to each raise Rs.40,000(a subsidized average amount required for one cardiac heart surgery) leading to over Rs16 lakhs being raised over a period of just one month.

    A function was subsequently held at DPS North to recognize and applaud the children. In turn we at NHF and RBI also got to understand better the trials the children went through to raise the funds. Truly inspiring!

    The unique fund raising drive was covered by various daily and business newsletters which is shared below:
