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.
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 products such as screw pine and water hyacinth.
For instance, 27-year-old Sadhik who is deaf and dumb has been able to make wonderful products from the two products. He is very proud of the fact that he can earn his living by his through this and can be financially independent.
With your help, the fundraiser raised ₹5,953. The funds raised were utilised to buy raincoats for 112 senior girls at Pardada Pardadi's school.
During monsoon, it becomes immensely difficult for the girls to travel to school. Many girls try to ride their cycle (provided by PPES) holding an umbrella but that is too risky. Moreover, umbrellas can’t protect them during a heavy shower.
The raincoats will help the girls travel to school without compromising with their health
Thanks to your contribution, the fundraiser raised ₹25,412. The funds raised were used to buy woollen caps, socks, and gloves for most of the under-11 girls at Pardada Pardadi's kindergarten and two primary schools.
During harsh winter months, these girls often fall sick which affects their education. For their parents, winter clothes are a luxury they can't afford.
The woollies delivered to them will help keep the girls warm and healthy during winters.
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.
