An organisation based in Bari is leading a campaign to support individuals from low-income families achieve their own #GlobalGoals

ARCHES – Advanced Research Centre for Health, Environment and Space – is asking for donations, of any amount, to help students in this situation, in a bid to tackle three of the 17 UN Global Goals, 1: No poverty, 4:  Quality education and 5: Gender equality.

Writing about Lisha, one of the people ARCHES is trying to support, on her gofundme page, Renato Toffanin, Cofounder and President of ARCHES, said: “Help Lisha become a social worker. She is an “outstanding student who is presently in her second year of bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Arts and Science College in Vellore District, Tamil Nadu State (India). Member of a very poor family, Lisha dreams to become a business woman and a social entrepreneur. Your donations will help Lisha continue her education and achieve her dream of building a better life. Our goal, if reached, will cover her total costs for this year, including accommodation and meals.”
