I am Gokul Sundar from Bangalore.This Diwali, I am raising funds for the Cauvery Belt community to give them access access to clean drinking water. 

I am grateful to the opportunities I received in my 4 years of college at NIT-Trichy. Always wondered how can I give back to the town and region and jumped on the opportunity to intern at Milaap last year, which was doin pioneering work to bring clean water and sanitation to the rural poor in and around Trichy.I learnt firsthand the power of small contributions.

This year, I want to take a bigger step - not be a just passive donor, but an evangelist for this movement. As small as Rs 1000 can bring clean water for a family for life. And the best part, you get your money back in a year's time. I want people to drop in little bit of their financial support for these people, so that their Diwali can be as meaningful as ours.

.I want to raise Rs 20,000 so that community can build water piped connections or install water filters so that they can get access to clean water in their homes. This will reduce the health problems of the people and benefit their livelihood too. 

And you have nothing to lose! All contributions on Milaap.org are loans, not donations. This means 100% of your money comes back to you - so be generous!
