New stretch target

Oh my goodness! We have hit our initial funding target within 36 hours of launching the Crowdfunder campaign! I am deeply humbled and cannot quite believe the incredible support SHIKSHAK has received from you wonderful people. THANK YOU… not just for getting SHIKSHAK to the target, but also for your encouraging and heart-warming messages!!! You are amazing!

With 19 more days of Crowdfunding to go, we have decided to stretch our target to £10,000. 

With the extra funds, we can finance our bigger plans:

1) a fuller library of detailed recipe videos (we have a list of over 300 videos we want to shoot) - all of which will require testing, retesting, perfecting, shooting and editing to the best standards so that you, our students, get the best possible experience. 

2) our exclusive Shikshak app. This will allow us to reach a wider audience and grant our students access to recipes videos, the live classes and the online forums and discussions with the touch of a button on their phone or tablet!

Thank you again... and watch this space for new pledge rewards, some of which will undoubtedly solve the conundrum of "socially distanced" gifts at Christmas... (yes it's getting to that time already!)

Shukriya!

Your Shikshak - Monica x
