At the end

And so, our fundraising drive closed with us far short of our target, Rs. 800,000/-. We had around 160,000/- in the account, and another Rs. 15,000/- or so expected from sales by Perch of the Ms. Meena soundtrack.

The good news is that we entered the new fiscal year better-funded than before. But it also means that we will have to raise funds separately for the 2012 Prajnya 16 Days Campaign against Gender Violence, which is both our most high-profile and most expensive activity.

What we had not asked for was the kind of seed support that allows us to have a team that works full-time, for a living wage, and for space to house that team and some of our activities. That was too much to put together from individual donations, however generous.

We hope that at the end of this year, when you look at how we use your donations, you will feel like we were a good team to support and that we met your hopes and expectation in substantial measure. Without your support, we could do nothing at all. Thank you!
