1ka100 - A drive for Child Rights and Education

Chitrakaar helped me raise a small but encouraging amount of Rs. 12500 in 2008, and then 30on30 last year saw a phenomenal success by raising Rs. 79000...

This amazing support from people who I knew and a lot who were not known to me, coupled with the focused thoughts of a few friends brought Sopaan into picture. While the registration under the Society's act is on its way, Sopaan is proud to launch another fund raiser called 1ka100...

Here is how it works

1. Bhaskar Jindal drives from Delhi to Mumbai
2. The distance is a total of 1500 kms
3. We are requesting people to support the initiative by donating Rs. 100 or multiples. Every 100 rupee supports one kilometer of the drive... All 1500 kms getting support, would mean that we are able to reach our aim of Rs. 150000.
4. The raised funds would then be donated to identified NGOs working for the cause of Child Rights and Education. Two of such NGOs are MAD and Cankids which are going to get funds from 1ka100
5. Please do read about the initiative here, and join the Facebook event here.
6. If you like the idea, the cause, the thought, please do contribute by donating money and/or encouraging your friends to spread the word around!
7. The intention is to reach out to more people and spread the word, hence the individual participation is kept as low as 100 bucks!!!

Hope to see a lot of support for 1ka100 like I got for 30on30 and Chitrakaar!

We would be sharing a progress report of 1ka100 in the format below...


  1. Chitrakaar inpired me to be a part of Project 30on30 which further encouraged me to be a part of Sopaan. You've inspired a lot of us, Om :)

    We will do it, again. We will. :)

    All the best.

  2. It will be as successful. Good luck to all that are involved.

  3. @Jas: I am so proud of you. The way you've been handling Project 'Helpout'. You've done a fab job. God bless you :)
