Hello Kgpians.…Diwali Give Away to Poor Families


While we are sitting comfortably in our suburban homes, just think of the poor people in IIT KGP campus or near the campus who are living hand to mouth or have no food.

The Covid pandemic has taken the lives of many of them and the ones who survived are suffering a lot.

On the occasion of Diwali we want to have a major food distribution campaign for our poor friends on the campus or near the campus. They served us well and now they need our help.

We only want to raise a total of $100,000 for this campaign and $21,000 has already been raised.

I hope you will support me in this campaign to feed the poor people who served us well and who are living in the campus or near the campus.


Please donate today.  We need your help today.
