COVID-19 CAMPAIGN TO PROVIDE REUSABLE MASKS FOR FAMILIES IN URBAN SLUMS OF BENGALURU
It is estimated that 200 million people live in urban slums of India. Just in Bangalore, we have 36 slums around the city. The high density of the population makes them prone to any contagion. The COVID-19 lockdown has affected the livelihood of daily wage workers in the urban slums. The residents tie handkerchiefs or shirt sleeves around their faces in lieu of proper masks. With disposable masks, it is not practical to provide a new mask every next day.
Recognizing this need, Schoolay has launched an innovative "Schoolay Defender Masks" which is re-usable up to 30 washes. Rather than making them in factories which is 20% cheaper, Schoolay has chosen to use daily-wage tailors who are struggling to earn their livelihood amidst lockdown.
THE COST OF ONE MASK IS INR 75. JUST INR 300 WILL PROVIDE A FAMILY OF 4 WITH MASKS.
INR 3000, FOR EXAMPLE, WILL IMPACT 10 FAMILIES.
HELP RAISE INR 1.5L TO HELP PROVIDE MASKS TO 500 FAMILIES IN URBAN SLUMS.

Will we get to know the details of who benefitted?
Yes. After the money has been collected it will be transferred to Schoolay Technologies. We will update you on the details of the beneficiaries as soon as possible. Once we get this information we shall upload a report on the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the beneficiaries.
How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
