Update: 01 Aug 2016, vChalk has reached 73% of its goal and has raised INR 217,561 ($3,627) from 64 Impact Angels from India and abroad. Thank you for your support! Rewards are coming your way soon!
Friday, 17th June 2016, vChalk has launched its first crowd-funding campaign in collaboration with Impact Guru, a fintech company that offers complete crowdfunding solutions for social enterprises, incubated at Harvard Innovation Lab's Venture. See the campaign page here. The objective of this fundraising campaign is $ 5,000 to finance the effort of bringing technology into classroom planning, an effort that would give us a differentiator in the market. The duration of the campaign is 40 days.
With our pilot project completed in March this year, we learned that technology can go a long way to help all children acquire the basic skills for learning. So we bring technology into the classroom to guide our community facilitators. They will have access to a mobile application that describes the activities for each group of children to do during the class each day. Here is the pitch video:
The money we raise will go towards: *50% - our classroom planning application development efforts; *30% - reaching more parents who dream better for their children enrolled in budget schools; *10% - our hiring efforts of locals who speak English to facilitate a vChalk class in a school nearby; *10% - office rent for 2 months till we have the mobile application ready for classrooms.
Contribute HERE and be one of vChalk's "impact angels". We have already reached 16% of our goal! Your contribution to vChalk campaign will get a great team at work on the global LEARNING crisis.
