Project Description

The Dharavi Girls for Change and the PeaceTech Lab wanted to raise funds for a group of young women in the Dharavi Slums of Mumbai who had lost their homes in a fire.

The team used Generosity as a crowdfunding platform to gather funds from many different contributors.

To raise awareness of the campaign, the team created a Storify of what happened to the girls and the support they had received thus far.

The team also raised awareness by reaching out to online media hubs.

Ultimately the team raised $11,603 to support the Dharavi Girls with clothes, laptops, and a chance to rebuild their lives.
