Thank you for your interest in sponsoring inFUSION- a show with live music featuring a group of talented teenage musicians who bring a special creative flair in interpreting and presenting soulful melodic harmonies of the East and West, while playing a variety of instruments and singing novel interplays of songs in multiple languages. Team inFUSION recently put together a fundraiser for Hugs for Brady Foundation and performed 2 back-to-back shows in South Brunswick and received an overwhelming response from the community with both shows being SOLD OUT!
The group is now putting a show together as a fundraiser to support Save Indian Farmers, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. The show is scheduled to be held on Sunday, May 14th, 2017 at TV Asia Auditorium in Edison, NJ. We are expecting 300-350 guests in our audience that will range from students and families from the local community as well as supporters of Save Indian Farmers. This will offer businesses like yours an opportunity to reach out to the local community and be part of a supporting a noble cause.
Save Indian Farmers, is a 501(c)(3) registered non profit here in the US. We have been active for over 5 years now and our primary objectives are to spread awareness about the plight of farmers in India, raise funds so we can support projects that alleviate these poor and needy farmers out of poverty, and monitor these projects to ensure they are producing the desired positive impact.
Over the last 5 years we have successfully launched projects in various regions of India but our key focus areas have been Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana which seem to be the epicenter of the crisis and have seen an alarming rate of farmer suicides. Some of our key projects include, Project Udaan which focuses on rural education, Project Adopt-a-Widow where we enable widows and families of farmers that committed suicide to start a small business so as to make them self sufficient, Project Kisan Mitra which is a Help line for farmers in distress, Project Sangaati which encourages and teaches organic farming techniques and Project Jal which is related to water conservation through rain water harvesting.
We are in need for funding for Project Jal and our goal for 2017 is to help at least 200 needy, marginal farmers in drought affected areas, adopt rainwater harvesting techniques so they have a sustainable means of irrigation water available to them for their farming needs. To that effect, we have partnered with Sankalpa rural development society, which offers a unique technique to harvest rain water and feed it to the water table for safe keeping via existing borewells that farmers have already dug. This technique is called direct borewell recharge. Based on a pilot we conducted last year in Dharur taluka of Beed district, Maharashtra, we were able to conserve over 15 million liters of water, which was sufficient for these 10 poor farmers to harvest a second crop even in drought like situations. In order to scale the success of our pilot, we plan to work with over 200 farmers in different regions of India and help them with their Borewell recharge. The typical cost to recharge a borewell is about Rs. 40,000 out of which the farmer spends 50% and our organization provides the remaining Rs. 20,000. The proceeds from this musical fund raiser will be used for Project Jal to support farmers in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, and Maharashtra. We are really grateful to you for your support and look forward to seeing you at the Event. Our volunteers are working hard to put together a fabulous show and we assure you that you will not be disappointed. Also your support will help a struggling farmer in India!
