  1. Supreme Overlord!!!!
    I registered and donated the points, I have even sent the link to people I know!
    Apurva,do you know what you need to do for donations?? I saw you have a link now for direct donations but you need to tell people about that. For example, make a project plan about solar energy program and send it to like every one. Not individual donors but the companies. Multimillion dollar companies many a times will sponsor youth led projects. Have you sent to Gates foundation? All these celebrities also do donate. If you send like 100 request you might get lucky, all you need is one big sponsor. These awards will bring you fame and you need these for publicity but not fetch you huge funds/finances. Your work is out of the world but strategize properly kiddo. Good luck!

  2. Congratulations Project Jatropha Team for being featured in Google Book :Inspiring Others
