Parichay has supporters all over the world thanks to the variety of interns that have assisted and worked with Parichay directly over the years. Many interns still continue to support Parichay after arriving back in their home countries.

John, our supporter who interned with Parichay in June-July 2012, recently sold cupcakes at a call centre in London in order to raise funds for Parichay. John spent 11 hours baking the day before and raised £80 (approx 6600 INR).

On the day of the sale, he spent around 8 hours selling cupcakes and homemade bath bombs. The staff at General Dynamics Information Technology thoroughly enjoyed his cakes, and he also obtained some extra donations for Parichay from staff members on the basis of goodwill.
