In 2015 I helped the Girls for Change from the Dharavi slum in Mumbai to bugfix and publish their app to prevent sexual violence. After a fire burned many of the girls’ homes and interrupted their technology studies, I helped them to set up a crowdfunding campaign on Generosity. We worked together to choose a platform, design the narrative of their movie, target the audience for fundraising, and reach out to news and blog outlets. After 2 months of campaigning, a story that was covered by Forbes and Mashable, the Dharavi Girls met and blew past their fundraising goal of $10,000. The money will go to clothes, food, fire sensors, laptops, and the girls’ continuing education.
