Support One of Fueled By Rice's partner organizations:
During our trip, we've had the opportunity to visit various non-profit organizations working to do good in their communities. We have listed here such of those that raise funds over the internet.
Street Survivors India
Shabnam Ramaswamy runs this organization in Katna, West Bengal. We visited her great school for a few days, talked with students, and saw the community development projects she is attempting to bring to the village. For information on donating to this organization, you can click here.
Education Advancement Fund International and the Qiaotou Kindergarten:
Kate Zhou established the Qiaotou Kindergarten with the knowledge that children born without the permission of the Chinese government are often barred from receiving critical social services, like schooling and health care. The school aims to provide a suitable learning environment for children who might otherwise be denied any opportunity of formal learning. To make a contribution, please send a check with the note "FBR Qiaotou" to:Education Advancement Fund International (EAFI ) at:
3356 Francis Street
Honolulu HI 96815

Support Fueled By Rice:
Fueled By Rice is currently funded solely by the five touring members and contributions from a few generous folks who enjoy reading our blog or want to help support our mission statement. We plan on getting by with these donations and mostly self-funding for however long our savings accounts hold out.
However, we are not adverse to accepting donations. If you value the content of this website, regard our venture as one worth supporting, or simply suffer from an overabundance of cash, we are accepting contributions via Paypal. Any money we receive will go first to pay for the hosting of our website. Additional funds will be split between group members to cover expenses such as visas or health insurance.
Also, please note that technically, we are not a charitable organization, so your contribution to our site will not be tax deductible.
