    Funded on Monday, 6th March 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    This year De Montfort University Netball Club is raising money for DMU Square Mile India, with the main fundraising event 'Netfest' being held on Saturday 11th February.

    Launched in February 2016, DMU Square Mile India combines the expertise of DMU academics with the skills of its students, providing services that will improve the education, health and living conditions of thousands.

    DMU Square Mile India projects include:
    •Connecting remote rural villages to sustainable energy resources
    •Providing health outreach to hundreds of people with hearing problems in Gujarat
    •Creating a new Square Mile in the slum of Ramapir No Tekro in Ahmedabad, Gujarat’s largest city
    •Developing new projects with partner universities, organisations and charities in India
    •Creating global internships for Indian students at DMU
    •Supporting a home for vulnerable children in Ahmedabad, as well as wider health and education programmes for underprivileged groups

    The initiative was founded after DMU Vice-Chancellor Professor Dominic Shellard visited the Gandhi Ashram, which includes a home for around 120 children in Ahmedabad, a city in the westernmost state of Gujarat.

    The ashram, where Mahatma Gandhi lived for 12 years, is located next to Ramapir No Tekro, a slum that houses 160,000 people in the same space as DMU’s Square Mile, which has 8,000 residents.

    It takes in only the poorest children and provides them with basic education, healthcare and food and it is around this home that DMU Square Mile India is providing life-changing support.

    Projects have been created to provide free hearing screenings, while engineering students will work on schemes to improve water supplies and drainage.

    DMU Square Mile India is also supporting the children’s home as part of its work in Ahmedabad though a charitable sponsorship scheme, the DMU Square Mile India Fund, which gives people the opportunity to make a real difference to a child’s life.
