The unexpected landfall of Coronavirus in India has trapped the country in various problems. Be it the medical infrastructure, sulking economy, unemployment, agrarian catastrophe, stranded migrant workers, or the fake news menace, to name a few. To face these challenges wisely, the young minds of India started with different initiatives to solve the crisis-like situation. Here is a list of few fundraiser projects by college students during the coronavirus pandemic.
1. Project Dhwani
Project Dhwani is an initiative by the college band of Bhartiya Vidyapeeth, Pune. The agenda behind this project is to raise funds for the production of PPE kits, face shields, and masks for India’s frontline COVID-19 warriors. For each donation that you make, you can request a cover of your favorite song or maybe dedicate your loved one’s their favorite song. Let them sing for you and you can change the world.
