THE 800 children with disabilities under Satya's care mainly belong to families who can't afford the medications needed to help cope with their disorders. Just ₹850 is enough for a month's supply for one child.
EDUCATION materials for their school-going children are a necessity that migrant labourers can't afford. Help Shiksha fund notebooks for 600 such eager students at their Mohyal Colony Education Centre.
SKIPPING school every month due to a lack of access to sanitation and menstrual hygiene products is an acute problem in slums and villages. At ₹540, you can fund reusable eco pads for one girl for a whole year.
FOR farmers, tribal self-help groups and non-profits attending CYSD's training programmes, constant interruption due to power cuts can impede their learning. Fund a new generator to ensure this never happens.

WHEN abandoned girls arrive at Baale Mane most are severely undernourished - the plight of 36% of Indian women, say UNICEF. Support Baale in nurturing their young wards with wholesome, nutritious food.
IN the first weeks of being born, a baby is vaccinated against serious diseases like polio and measles that can maim or kill. But not in Kolkata's slums where child immunisation rates are dangerously low.
Your generous donations helped the fundraiser raised ₹11,310 of its target amount of Rs 300,000. Fight Hunger Foundation has added the amount to the funding of one of their existing programs in Baran. The funds raised on Small Change will fund hygiene Kits to 20 Severely Acute Malnutrition (SAM) beneficiaries seeking treatment under the Community-Based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) program.
Every hygiene kit contributed towards building a better future for these beneficiaries!
The festive fundraiser was successful! We achieved the target in just a week and raised ₹17,650. Your generous donations were used to buy school kits for 44 girls at Baale Mane. Once Donatekart delivered the goods, they were distributed to the girls who were excited to receive new bags and stationery.
Each girl was given one school bag costing ₹270, a pen worth ₹3, two pencils costing ₹4 each and five long notebooks which cost ₹23 each.
Every school kit contributed towards building a better future for these girls!
With your generous support, this fundraiser achieved 17% of its target and raised ₹43,526!
The funds are covering part of the costs for two 30-hour training programmes. Here's a quick update -
We first approached government and government-aided schools in Lucknow, Sitapur and Gorakhpur to talk to them about integrating their life skills training programme into the students’ timetables. By November, the programme was accepted by Neena Thapa Inter College in Gorakhpur, and they agreed to support each student with an additional token of ₹500.
We raised additional funds to cover the costs of more students, and in December, 70 female students, between the ages of 14-16 years, signed up for the programme. So far, one batch of 35 girls have completed their training of 30 hours, while another batch of 35 girls are half way through!
Reetika Pandey, a student at Neena Thapa Inter College, was asked about her training experience and said “I used to be short-tempered – after Medha’s class, I have begun to learn how to manage my anger.” Reetika’s trainer, Piyush, sees her story as that of a “girl finding her voice” He is proud to share that today Reetika expresses herself confidently, and uses techniques like voice modulation and positive body language to her best advantage.
It’s wonderful to see the training programme making such positive changes in the students’ lives, and we wish the second batch of students a happy learning experience!
We’re back! This fundraiser achieved 36% of its target, while the rest of the costs were covered internally so we, the Awadh KHELadis could participate at the Ahmedabad Ultimate Open 2018.
The tournament was a thrilling and enriching experience for us. We’ve returned home with a major achievement – a national ranking of 19, a huge jump from the ranking of 32 that we started off with!
We’re so happy to have been able to represent Lucknow at the tournament, and can’t wait to do this again!
The funds raised were used for 35 critical care surgeries, including post-surgery medication, surgeons’ fees and food for animals. Three of the surgeries cost ₹15,000. The treatment for rest of the 32 animals came up to approximately ₹ 23,200.
Out of these 35 animals, 26 animals were successfully treated and released.back to their territories. 7 animals, which were medically fit, are either receiving advanced physiotherapy and awaiting adoption or waiting to be picked up by their caretakers.Two animals succumbed to irreparable injuries involving their backbones.
Suman has happily settled into NIFT Mumbai, where she is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Design. She had always wanted to become a successful fashion designer, so she has been pouring her heart and soul into her degree.
Thanks to the fundraiser, which raised ₹6447, Suman was able to purchase books, essential stationery items, designing sheets and other designing material enough to last her six months! This has allowed her to focus on her work without having to worry about buying books and stationery.
We’re so proud of you Suman!
Our Festive Fundraiser was so successful! We achieved 100% of our target and raised ₹17,500 – enough for bags and stationery for 50 children.
Once Donatekart delivered the goods, we began distributing them to children staying in the Udayan Care homes in Delhi NCR. All the children really loved the quality of the bags and were so excited for new stationery that they began using it as soon as they received it!
We hope to continue this lovely tradition of gift giving at our Udayan Care Homes.
With the help of Rs 1,15,744 raised through the fundraiser, Sona Sarovar Trust has been able to give healthy food, special laddoos, and snacks for 50 slum children on a daily basis.
For instance, 12-year-old Arti Sav was severely malnourished when her aunt first brought her to live in Mumbai so that she could look after her five cousins. Arti's parents couldn't afford the basic necessities which had a profound effect on her health. Using the funds raised by this fundraiser, Sona Sarovar Trust made sure her diet included generous amounts of healthy food such as banana, dates, sprouts, and mixed fruits. Within few months there was a noticeable change: Arti put on weight, looked cheerful and scored better in class.
We are happy to let you know that we have reached out to 208 children in several slum communities in Kolkata since this fundraiser closed! The funds have allowed us to run an immunisation drive twice a month at our clinic where we have been immunising children, and providing each child with a nutritional benefit bag of bananas, bread, soya beans, pulses and more.
Our capacity building and health education efforts are educating families on the importance of immunisation for disease and illness prevention.
For example, Rubina was hesitant to immunise her four children (her two daughters pictured to the left) out of a fear of impotence and other side effects. Our outreach workers and health professionals worked with her to make her understand the benefits of immunising her children. Now, all her children’s immunisations are up to date, and she intends to keep it that way!
Through the fundraiser, we managed to raise Rs12,600. The nutrition camp hosted 12 mothers and 10 MAM children, with the costs of 6 of the children being covered by the fundraiser.
The 12-day nutrition camp educated mothers about good practices with regards to malnourishment, breastfeeding and hygiene. We also showed mothers how to prepare healthy porridges with vegetables pulses, and rice. After 12 days of participating in the nutrition camp, the children gained between 20grams to 1kg.
The biggest transformation can be seen in 20-month-old Manju who was born underweight. Until the nutrition camp, her basic needs such as food, nutrition and sanitation, had gone unattended for the most part because of her family’s strained economic situation. After practising all her learnings from the nutrition camp, Manju’s mother managed to get Manju’s weight up from 7.6kg to 8.6kg!
