It’s been several years and Poacha has never taken any funding or financial support for anyone. All his initiatives work with help of volunteers and like minded people.
He believes one can create a large scale societal impact even if he/she does not have money. By creating WhatsApp groups, website and a network of dedicated people, Poacha has made sure his initiatives are sustainable and will continue to exist even without him.
