Crowd funding, this has caught up India in a new wave in last few years as to appeal for people or organizations to work in for a cause or medical aid and now its for education. 24-year old Bhagya Sivaraman seems to have found some of angels in human form who’ve reached out to help.
Her story is simple, she has worked hard to reach here. She’s a Stella Maris, Chennai & Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) Mumbai Gold medalist and a recipient of Ratan Tata Scholarship and now she secured admission for a Masters course in Evidence Based Social Intervention at Oxford University, she had missed out scholarships for the programme and taking a loan isn’t possible due to financial strains.
She approached Indiegogo on a friends advice to help her approve of crowdfunding for $50,000 which includes hes $35,000 tution fee at Oxford and accommodation in vicinity. Many have come to help her, but she still needs more funding to reach it up, she doesn’t know if she’ll make it but is overwhelmed by all the help she’s receiving, in case she wouldn’t be able to make it to Oxford, she plans to try the next year and the money of donators would be returned. We hope she makes it there! If you can help, please do the same.
