NGOS OF THE MONTH
Give to a cause that is meaningful to you
Back in April, we raised ₹9,006 to power our Rural Livelihood Training Centre in Keonjhar. The Centre is located in an isolated part of Keonjhar, where power supply is erratic and unreliable. As an organisation, we are also trying to transition to more environmentally friendly practices, which is why we decided to fundraise for a zero-emission generator.
Since the funds raised did not cover the costs of the generator, we are in the process of arranging the remaining funds internally and hope to purchase and install it soon.
We are happy to report that we raised ₹2,01,851 in order to provide crafts training for the Santal women of Purulia to provide them with alternative livelihood opportunities.
40 women in two villages were selected to receive training from two master trainers from 5th September to 17th September 2018. The women attended the workshop everyday and left with new skills and an eagerness to create and sell ornaments made from natural fibres.
The funds went towards transport, lodging, food, raw materials, trainer fees etc., and will also cover the costs of a video and follow-up trip.
We have finally distributed 25 cycles to 25 deserving girls in Jalna who had to walk long distances to get to school. After receiving cycles, many parents enrolled their daughters in better schools and colleges in neighbouring villages, and have promised to let them complete their education.
For example, Afreen, who comes from a very poor family, has struggled to keep herself in school by paying fees in instalments, working two jobs and travelling long distances. After receiving a cycle, she has one less thing preventing her from getting her BSc and becoming a successful engineer! :)
Thank you for your contribution to this fundraiser.
With your help, we raised 3,205 which helped in rescuing a 14-year-old Shahnawaz from Kanpur railway station. He was rescued on 5th June and was reunited with his family on 13th June. Shahnawaz from Jharkhand had run away from home and had been missing for ten days. His parents had almost given up hope when SATHI found him.
Your valuable support ensured Shahnawaz was safely reunited with his family.
Thanks to your support, this fundraiser raised ₹42,002. The remaining amount has been covered by Jamghat’s individual donors so that all 75 children under their care can receive daily meals for a month. The funds have been used to purchase rations for two children's homes and a daycare centre in New Delhi. Jamghat opted to use the funds for a variety of rations, such as rice, pulses, cooking oil, wheat flour, vegetables, fruits and eggs.
Nutritious and wholesome food is vital for these children who rarely have access to food, and aids their overall physical and mental development.
Through this fundraiser, we managed to raise ₹30,001! With the funds raised, we opted for 252 litres of cooking oil and 140 kgs of masoor dal, which Donatekart delivered to us within two weeks. Oil and dal are essential rations which will make up a part of the nutritous lunches we will provide our students at Tala Park school.
Now our students can just enjoy their healthy midday meals and focus on their studies!
So far, 164 patients have received 988 palliative care counselling sessions.
Palliative care is a crucial part of caring of people living with HIV. Noorjahan, 28, was admitted suffering with multiple physical and emotional issues. Not being able to receive proper care at home, and no one to share her difficulties with, her sessions gave her a space to share her distress. The family sessions also gave her husband a chance to understand her situation in a more nuanced way so he can be more supportive. She was discharged with better health and a desire to independently manage her health.

Thank you for helping us raise ₹27,602, 6% more than our target amount!
The funds have helped us cover all the dormitories windows and hall room with new, high-quality mosquito net frames. 45 girls will directly benefit from these net frames. The meshes have improved the quality of living for the Baale Mane girls and helped us to protect them from diseases such as dengue in the rainy season.
So, thank you once again for your generosity :)
Thank you for your valuable contribution to this fundraiser.
With your help, we successfully raised 1,12,255, 12% more than the target amount! The funds were used to fund the research including payment to researchers, reference books and materials bought or created, sites related to WW1 visited for data collection and information gathering.
The eventual beneficiaries of this project will be at least 25000 students from across Bengaluru. This amount funded the first part of the project. The exhibition will start travelling to schools from August 2018.
Thank you for your generous contribution to this fundraiser!
With your support, we raised ₹51,966 which helped us educate 45 manual scavengers about other available options for earning a livelihood. These women participated in Dignity Workshop where they were acquainted with Garima Abhiyaan, its objective, and the work we have done so far.
They were also given capacity building workshop where they were oriented about opting alternative livelihood options. The funds raised were used for travel, stationery, and food of the participants in two workshops.
