Veerayata’s Rudrant Center in Kutch
Following the earthquake, many families migrated to nearby villages and rural areas in need of immediate shelter and have since chosen to settle there permanently even though these locations are devoid of proper sanitation, education and transportation systems.
“Veerayatan’s primary school at Rudrani has been built to help the people in these areas. At present, a majority of these children are the first in their families to experience formal education. This has instilled confidence and enthusiasm in them; their parent and guardians are also happy to see their children going to school, which until a few years ago was a distant dream for them.”

Milaap X E27 Entrepreneurship Development Fund
The EDF is a microlending platform that aims to fund entrepreneurs who though untouched by technology, are keen to improve their quality of life. Instead of handing out donations, EDF disburses the funds from contributors as loans. The loans then enable entrepreneurs to scale their business and generate employment for others too. At the end of 24 months, contributors will get a 100% of their loans or may opt to pay them forward to other entrepreneurs in need. According to Milaap CEO, Mr. Sourabh Sharma, this is the first time that such a model of capital raising – a fund by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs – is employed.
Rikvin will be matching every dollar, up to S$50,000, that is raised by Milaap.
Why Are We Doing This
“We are fully behind this project because firstly, it empowers and promotes self-sufficiency among people who are underprivileged but passionate to succeed in life. Secondly, in Singapore we’ve been incredibly lucky to have the infrastructure and support required to find meaningful jobs, start up businesses and pursue our own wealth. We also understand the extent of poverty that exists in India and it is only fair that we give back. We also hope that this funding will help elevate the quality of our beneficiaries’ lives and propel them to pursue bigger dreams.”
