We dream of educated and developed India where everyone has the right to education, economic development, water & sanitation, health & nutrition. For this equality we have to go to grass root level where poverty and unhygienic living conditions of people are depriving them from all their rights. Apart from government endeavour to support them few non-government organizations are also trying to reach out to the people living below poverty. These organizations can’t do this service alone so they take initiative for fund raising or crowdfunding where anyone can donate any amount for underprivileged. The concept of crowdfunding is aided many causes. One of the prominent crowdfunding organizations is Filaantro. It is an online crowdfunding platform that uses the power of social media to help individuals or organizations to raise funds by collecting donations through family, friends, friends of friends, strangers, businesses, and more for Social, Personal and Charitable causes.
