This year for my birthday, I’m fundraising $1000CAD for our Hara World winter camp program. The camp serves marginalized youth in accessing outdoor activities that foster community, confidence, health and wellness.
As we work towards our next step at Hara World in 2022 with our camp programs, I'd like to take the lead on working with our local youth here in the mountains of Manali. For many youth, there is a huge gap in formal and experiential education, especially since COVID-19. School is virtual. Kids are dialling in from a mobile device. Internet is spotty (or nonexistent!). Community is lacking and confidence is dwindling.
Hara World will be launching Hara Camp in 2022, an inclusive and safe programming space located in Manali, Himachal Pradesh that will host our ongoing camp programming. Our programs bring diverse youth together to strengthen community development, leadership skills, social-emotional learning (SEL) and physical and mental wellness through our themes of social & environmental justice, arts and sport. Participant program costs and our camp property revenue (once operating in 2022-23) help fund scholarships for marginalized and migrant youth. As a result, we will be able to offer truly diverse and immersive experiences where all youth have access to quality, experiential and outdoor education, and extracurricular activities that are often inaccessible.
With this fundraising campaign, our $1000CAD goal will allow us to purchase secondhand winter sport equipment, including skis and snowboards, that will be used by our winter camp participants this 2021/2022 winter season.
We'll be shipping equipment from donors in Canada as equipment here is mostly unavailable.
Donors are welcome to donate cash to support the cause OR send their secondhand winter sport equipment to our drop-off location in Toronto. To do so, please contact me directly at email@example.com
Thank you in advance for your support and we can't wait to share the outcomes (and awesome videos and photos) of our participants slaying the slopes this winter!
