NGOS OF THE MONTH
Give to a cause that is meaningful to you
With the funds raised, we opted for 40kg of dates. Dates are very high in iron, and a great supplement for individuals who are anaemic. So far, we have distributed some of the packets of dates to families that we work with, but will be distributing the rest during a special training we will be conducting with adolescent girls. A majority of the girls that will be at the training are HIV-positive, or have family members who are HIV-positive. We will be working with them on building resilience and life-skills.
We raised enough to support 20 migrant children at our daycare centre. With their parents working hard as construction labourers, the children at our daycare centre often do not receive a proper education or adequate medical care, which is what the funds raised are going towards. We are also provide them with nutritious meals, fun activities, and occasionally take them out on field trips.
Five-year-old Jiya recently went on an exciting trip to the National Rail Museum in Delhi and said, "I liked going out with my Didi and really enjoyed see all the colourful trains."
Eight-year-old Hasina from Meghalaya was born with a cleft lip and palate. While her twin sister has been leading a normal and healthy life, Hasina's development has been restricted by not being able to eat properly. Her cleft lip and palate also made her feel self-conscious and shy. Her mother Fatima feared that Hasina would not be able to lead a normal life. That is, until one of our volunteers on the field met Hasina and identified her need for surgery. Hasina soon received surgery, and a few weeks later recovered with a beautiful smile!
We always have such an amazing time celebrating Puja with our students. Thanks to this fundraiser, we were able to buy new clothes for 150 children, while other funds covered the cost of new clothes for another 500 children.
The clothes were distributed just before Puja began so the children had something new to wear when we took them pandal hopping. They were all excited with their new clothes, and confidently joined in the city's Puja celebrations.
With your support, we raised ₹27,805 and successfully completed the fundraiser! The funds raised were used to provide three meals for 45 girls and their caregivers for a week. The girls get healthy home-cooked meals and snacks at the Baale Mane home and carry packed lunch to school which ensures they get their daily nutrition and are able to concentrate well in class.
Thank you for your valuable contribution. The meals will keep the girls healthy and happy.
Thank you for donating to this fundraiser! With your support, we raised ₹61,869 which was used to medicines for 24 children for six months.
Most of the special needs children supported come from families who struggle to meet their basic expenses on a daily basis. Long-term access to necessary medicines is crucial for these children.
We appreciate your contribution to this cause.
With the funds raised, we purchased dry rations such as wheat, salt, sugar and rice, which we distributed across 14 Udayan Care homes. The rations are going towards cooking nutritious and wholesome food for 18 children, aged 6 to 18.
One such child is Shalu who came under the care of Udayan Care in 2011 after her parents passed away while living on the streets. Despite her loss, Shalu always worked hard in school and has been on a mission to make the most out of her new life. The balanced diet she receives at the home gives her lots of energy to be able to focus and learn in school.
Dilip has been enrolled at Webel Technologies for his 3D animation and filmmaking course since August. The course duration is one year, so he still has lots more to learn! He has been progressing and getting better every day, and being in this course has inspired a stronger passion in him. He's always in class, and never skips a day. We're so proud of him!
Pictured here is one of his creations in progress.
We raised ₹33,510 and were able to purchase two sets of clothing materials for 35 girls. We distributed them during our annual Joy of Giving Week in October. Providing the clothing materials significantly cuts miscellaneous education-related expenses for the girls' families, and is a way to ensure the girls continue their education.
As 3rd Year B.Com student Sandhya says, "My family need not spend a lot for my education now. If I didn’t get this support, I might have discontinued my education."
Thank you for your valuable contribution to the fundraiser.
The amount raised,₹12,004, was used to buy raw materials for all the 50 participants of skill upgradation program for the differently-abled handicraft artisans. The funds helped in training the beneficiaries in how to work with natural resources such as screw pine and water hyacinth.
For instance, 27-year-old Sadhik who is deaf and mute has been able to make wonderful handicrafts from the two products. He is very proud of the fact that he can earn his living through this and can be financially independent.
