£975raised of £2,000 target by 13 supporters

    Weʼve raised £975 to build a clean and hygienic kitchen in an urban slum of Kolkata, India.

    Cambridge, UK
    Funded on Friday, 9th December 2016

    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 charity.

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


    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


    - £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.
