We are currently expecting delays in getting funds to this project due to new regulatory requirements that impact GlobalGiving's ability to disburse to organizations in India. GlobalGiving is working hard to address the issue. Donations to this project will be disbursed as quickly as possible.
Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
