Hamburg

Hi! My name is Ann and I live in the beautiful city of Hamburg. While studying international tourism management in the Netherlands I tried to travel as much as possible. As I travelled I made the sad realisation that many children do not receive an education – something that I believe should be a right for every child. This is why I believe in supporting My name is Kumar, as through the education the organisation provides, the children have a chance for a brighter future. 

 

 

 

Paris

Hello, my name is Velina and I live in Paris. Education has played a special role in my history and I believe it to be the way to open minds and make people not only dream to a better life and but also an initial key that will help them reaching it. As for my investment in My Name is Kumar Foundation, I think everyone has a role to play and I am convinced that lending those kids a helping hand, as insignificant as it seems, can make a difference in their lives.

 

 

Oslo

My name is Linda and I live in both Oslo and Gambia. After finishing my degree in tourism and visitor management I worked in various positions related to travel. I couldn’t shake the niggling feeling that I wanted to find something a little more meaningful; this was when I began my masters in responsible tourism management. I realised my dream job did not exist so decided to create it myself. I founded Ethical Travel Portal, which is built on responsible tourism principles so we contribute to the destinations we visit.

 

 

 

 

Copenhagen 

My name is Dan and I live in Copenhagen, Denmark. I believe in the good in all people, and that everyone should have the right to get a life worth living. Through my work I have spend a lot of time in India. Therefore I know the importance of the work that Buy Rice Back is doing. The results that have already been made are amazing. But yet there is much to be done, this is why I support Buy Rice Back - and ask everyone to do the same. 

 

 

 

 

Den Bosch 

My name is Michelle and I live in Den Bosch, the Netherlands. I am studying Pedagogy and next year summer in 2015 I will visit the 37 former begging children supported by The My name is Kumar Foundation. 

 

 

 

 

Pittsburgh 

My name is Caroline and I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I was moved to hear the story behind My name is Kumar and the up-cycling process. I am inspired by my friends who have taken on such a wonderful cause and eager to contribute in any way I can. 

 

Cambridge (MA) 

My name is Daniel and I live in Cambridge in the United States. I was extremely impressed with the idea of using the sale of recycled rice bags as a funding mechanism for such a worthy cause. I knew that my neighbours and colleagues in Cambridge would both embrace the cause, and love the bags – I have not been disappointed. I am very happy to be contributing towards the excellent mission of the My name is Kumar foundation. 

 

Singapore 

Hi! I’m Rachel and I live in Singapore. Singapore is an island city state that places a strong emphasis on education for everyone. I believe education is the key to improving lives and everyone should be given the opportunity to receive education. My name is Kumar is a great foundation that offers a home and education to children and I hope to do my part to support this foundation by contributing in any way I possibly could.
