Weʼre raising £1,000 to help fund an Inclusive Sensory Motor (ISM) and Rehabilitation park in India
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.
On Sunday 19th May I will be taking part in the Leiden 10K run in The Netherlands. I would like to take this opportunity to raise some money to support the building of an Inclusive Sensory Motor (ISM) and Rehabilitation park, for a rural community in Karnataka.
Could I please ask for your kind donation towards supporting the project. My fundraising target is £1000. If this target is reached, I will personally put in an additional £150. So please please help me fundraise for this fantastic project, which will be one of it's kind in rural India!!
Having volunteered personally for the organisation, I can assure you that you're money would be going into the hands of people who are truly passionate and caring about creating a meaningful change in India. More information about SVYM and the Rehabilitation park is given below.
Please pass this on to all your friends and family!
Thank you very much for your donations and for all your support!
With Love, Aji
SVYM is a development organization, engaged in building a new civil society in India through its grassroots to policy level action in Health, Education, Socio Economic Empowerment, Training & Research sectors (https://svym.org/). The development initiatives of SVYM are designed to build Human and Social Capital of the deserving community and to improve their economic Well-being. SVYM is actively striving to improve the quality of life of the tribal and rural community for the last 34 years impacting nearly 3 million people across Karnataka.
The Inclusive sensory motor (ISM) play ground and rehabilitation emporium concept of Disabled-friendly, barrier- free Public Park has been planned in VMH hospital Saragur taluk, Mysuru district. It is a project by the Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement (SVYM), with government collaboration and Community participation.
The community in Saragur has provided a space of 4½ acres of land for the construction. The park, to be completely functional, requires a budget of Rs. 25,00,000 (Twenty Five Lakhs only). This ISM park will consist of all equipment required for Motor, Cognitive and Sensory development and will include the following disable friendly equipment:
Parallel bars, leaning boards, standing frames, special chairs, climbers, crawlers, sympathetic special swing, sensory special slides - wheel chair accessible and safe slides, special merry-go round and special see-saw, sensory pathway - grass, tiles, sand, pebbles etc, sand pit, sensory corner- auditory, visual and tactile stimulation
as well as a lake, a walking path, & a statue of Swami Vivekananda.
SVYM has been working with people with disabilities for the past 23 years in Saraguru, H.D.Kote taluk and has realised the need for a disable friendly park to cater to children with special needs.
This park will give a chance for children with disabilities to not only play and have fun while exercising but also provide a platform to interact with other people and other kids. Saragur does not have a park for the citizens to walk, this is much needed as Saragur is on the fringes of the forest where both wild animals and vehicles make it difficult for people to go on walks during early mornings and evenings. Hence this park will give access to all age groups.
This park will be maintained by SVYM for the first two years and later the maintenance will be taken up by the Patana Panchayath of Saragur Taluk.
May we request you to support this unique initiative for the specially abled and join hands to spread the message of service to mankind – Serving God in Man.
