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.
The FIDA Foundation is an NGO based in Pune, India. It was established 12 years ago by a group of my school friends who wanted to 'give something back'. We aspire to empower the underpriviledged by providing access to education. Over the years we have taken on dozens of students from impoverished backgrounds via the Scholarship Program, most of whom are now established professionals giving back to their local communities. Please take the time to click on the links to read more about this amazing story -
In addition to Scholarship Programs we also support special projects in a school for disabled children and provide ongoing pastoral support and career advice.
We do not do money hand outs and this old adage seems to perfectly capture our philosophy
Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime
We are only small but perfectly formed and your donations will help change this world one child at a time.

About the fundraiser

The Comrades Ultra Marathon is an annual race run between Durban and Pietermaritzburg in South Africa. This year the distance is 90.2km (56 miles). I have put my blood, sweat and tears over the past 6 months training for it. Your donations will get me across the finish line !
