    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.


    On 31st August, I'll be running 10km along the North Norfolk coast and it would be wonderful if you would consider sponsoring me to raise money for Balagurukulam, an orphanage for abandoned children in Chennai.

    Balagurukulam is home to around 50 children found abandoned as babies in Chennai and its surrounding villages, and their aim is to provide a home for at least 300 children over the coming years. Through immense hard work and dedication, Ranjith, Sumathy and all the helpers at Bakagurukulam provide children with a loving home and a good education at local schools to give them the best possible start in life. After visiting Balagurukulam on three occasions, I have been inspired by the loving and supportive family environment Balagurukulam provides for children under their care, offering a fresh start to life in a way that's nurturing and empowering.

    All the children at Balagurukulam have big ambitions (ranging from Deepa who hopes to become an English teacher to Sharada who wants to be a singer) and Bakagurukulam would be so grateful for any support to enable them to realise these dreams.

      Hi, I'm Surina and I'm hoping to raise funds for Balagurukulam, an orphanage for abandoned children in Chennai. I first visited Balagurukulam in 2013 and was blown away by the care and dedication to give the best possible start to every of the 50 children under their care.
