Quarterly Newsletter

April 2020 Edition 

Welcome to our very first edition of newsletter. It will be our endeavor to use this as our channel (minimally but optimally) for letting you know whats happening at our end without overloading you with too much information. 

In out first edition, we focus on our cohort's demographics so you get an idea of profiles and timelines of orbits that are getting shifted -THANKS to YOU!

Enough is being said about the epidemic so we shall refrain from adding anything more. Thankfully most of the families that you and we have been supporting do not fall into migrant or daily-wage earners category but 6 of them are facing a financial turbulence due to the lost income streams. We have been partially augmenting the lost wages of these 6 families who are in distress and will most likely continue one more round of disbursements before normalcy returns.  

Meanwhile we hope  you and your loved ones are safe and comfortable.

Please do write to us @ communications@shiftingorbits.org or whatsapp @ +91 968 657 7038 for any suggestions that you might have to keep this channel engaging in an optimal way.

    Fund Raising

    We launched a new monthly subscription plans for individual donors last month. With that our annual contribution from Individual donor is at INR 3L+. 

    We are in talks with 4 corporate(s) and have the final go-ahead from 1 of them to help us for 2020 expansion plans. The budgeted amount for 5 locations/60 students is approximately INR 32L. We are glad to say that we have almost closed the target and should be hitting the grounds as soon as normalcy returns!

    Operations

    For 2019 - We operated from 2 locations (KR Puram and Kadugudi) covering around 21 families within Bangalore. 

    For 2020 - We are expanding to 3 more locations covering 60+ families. The finalization of additional locations are in progress with our partner organizations

    We have also completed building a robust governance and process structure around each activity required for running the programs and are ready to test it on ground as soon as the planet settles down!
