Last but one call: Donate today and help our 5 runners reach their target!

The TCS World 10K is coming up on May 15th, and we have five runners who are raising funds to support the journalism published on Citizen Matters.

Each of them have chosen specific areas that they are raising funds for and we are looking to raise Rs 3,00,000 across all the campaigns. Here are the details.

  • Thejesh GN for open data and transparency
  • Raghu Kashyap for stories on waste management
  • Shilpi Sahu for saving lakes
  • Jothi Padmanabhan for stories on education and schooling
  • Kalyan Devi for a garbage-free Bengaluru

To each of the runners, thank you from all of us at Citizen Matters – for seeing value in the kind of work we do, and for helping us out with our fundraising.
