People Around You
What better way to spread the word about your project but through your group of friends and relatives? Let them know about your project and gain support through word of mouth:
Tell your friends about Spark the Rise, and how it will help to shape the next big Spark for a better tomorrow. Know a relative that is working in a professional field that you need expertise on? Leverage their knowledge and experience, by contacting them for help.
Use Social Media
With the advances in technology, everyone is inter-connected with each other, whether it is through social networks or mobile devices. Tap on to your personal networks to let people know about your project, and seek their support to make your vision and idea come to life.
Create a blog that focuses entirely on your project and how it will help to Spark the Rise. You can talk about your vision and even post progress updates on how your project is doing.
Facebook is the fastest growing social network in India, with the most active users between the ages of 15-24. Primarily driven by youth, promote your project by creating a Facebook page to reach out. Tap on the public's enthusiasm and inspire them to give you the support you need.
Looking for more specialised help? Check out LinkedIn, which gives you direct access to professionals in various fields from the ages of 25-34.
Want to give users a quick update about your project from anywhere in India? Create a twitter account, and tweet updates on your project's progress to gain followers and keep them informed during critical stages.
Now that you have submitted your project, you can consider holding an event that will educate people about your vision and goals for the project. Organise small events in your local communities to tell them more about your project.
Use the events to gather support and tell people more about Spark the Rise, and how it will help to change India for a better tomorrow.

Do not be afraid to face up to rejection! Finding sponsors is not an easy job, but persevere and you might just find the perfect partner to help you make your project a reality and a success.
Now that your project has gathered more support and funding, it is time to let the Press know of about your project's growing potential:
