    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    With over 1.5 million people living in 3500 unregistered slums in Kolkata, India, we conducted an assessment in nutrition and health education of mothers and children in three urban slum areas in the city of Kolkata, India.

    Slums are defined as areas having 25 or more katcha structures; houses barely held together with no private latrines, water facilities or kitchens.

    We found out that 85% of the mothers and children in the urban slums are malnourished, which can be easily avoided if they had the education.

    So, we need your help to build a Teaching Kitchen for them . This will build capacity and support mothers with limited resources to achieve the best nutrition for their children.

    The kitchen will also serve as a community hub for:
    - Malnutrition screening / prevention
    - Health promotion
    - Disease prevention

    WHAT WILL YOUR FUNDS BUY?

    - £100: Purchase of some basic utensils and supplies for the kitchen
    - £150: Purchase of all basic utensils and supplies for the kitchen
    - £250: Training of the local mothers in cooking and basic hygiene
    - £500: Continuous electricity (generator) and clean water supply for the kitchen
    - £1000: Structural components of the kitchen: Wood, Bricks, Construction workers etc.

    Help us make our vision sustainable. Help us give these children a longer life. Help us give these mothers hope that their children will live in a better tomorrow.
