2018 – Nagarathna Memorial Grant Results
My mother passed away on 14 April, 2016. She was a teacher. She came from a poor family, struggled throughout her youth to reach where she reached. She was very successful in her personal and professional life. So I thought it would be a good idea to setup a micro grant in her memory. I thought micro grant would be enough money for someone to do something they love. With lots of hesitation and doubt 1, I announced Nagarathna Memorial Grant on twitter. All hesitations and doubts faded away in a day. Thanks to everyone who called, messaged, tweeted. It’s encouraging and makes me happy.
Tomorrow was the last day to accept. I got all acceptance emails last week. Today is a good day to announce. So here we go
|Vasundhara Social Welfare Society||40,000|
|Banwasi Seva Ashram||10,000|
|Kid in our neighborhood||5,000|
Thanks to all the grantees for accepting2. A huge thank you to everyone who applied.
I got more applications than I expected. Filtering them took time as I didn’t have any particular criteria when I started. I increased the total grant money to ₹80000 3 to accommodate more. . So next year I will make announcements on this blog and send emails unlike this year. Also will start a RD account so I can save more than ₹80000. Let’s see how it goes.
