Date of fund raising request: 23 April 2013
Purpose: To request small contributions of around Rs. 5 lakhs to Freedom Team of India (FTI) to help it support Sone Ki Chidiya, India’s total reform movement.
FTI, founded in July 2009, is a forum for policy, strategy, and leadership development, focused on the defence of life and liberty in India. Its members will lead India, through elections, to unprecedented prosperity.
Soné Ki Chidiya (SKC), launched on 26 January 2013 by a few well-meaning individuals, was converted into a Federation in March 2013, and a number of organisations have agreed to join it at the National Reform Summit organised at Haridwar from 5-8 April 2013.
FTI is the Secretary to the Federation. We are keeping no membership fee in the first year. This will encourage people and organisations to join and work together. SKC is a broad-based movement for everyone in India. Its platform (and membership) is available to everyone who wants liberty and good governance in India, based broadly on a Vision.
SKC movement will work to deliver good governance to India, to put the era of corruption and injustice behind us and start achieving our potential as a nation. Sone Ki Chidiya is what India was in the past and what it will be in the future.
Why the need for funds?
SKC Federation has already received a donation of a rent-free place in Delhi for one year to open its national office. We have also been given some donations of furniture and a laptop. The office is currently being prepared for regular operations. At least Rs.50,000 is needed to make the office operational and to pay for utilities.
Further, at least Rs. 4.5 lakhs is needed for the following purposes:
a) to organise about 20 policy committees and hold meetings meetings;
b) to prepare and lodge significant PILs (and hold press conference/s); and
c) to undertake any urgent activity to advance the movement, without waiting for funds.
Your small contribution will help us reach out as widely as possible. Suggested minimum contribution is Rs.5,000 but smaller contributions will also be accepted. Please contribute generously.

i) Only Indian citizens are eligible to contribute to FTI, and all contributions will need to be made in Indian rupees electronically into FTI’s bank account.
