Every winter pack will gift health and comfort to a school girl!
This fundraiser has been extended until the end of the month!
Most of these under-11 girls come from poor families where even investing in a cardigan or sweater for their child is considered a luxury - let alone a hat, gloves and socks. In the cold, our bodies lose heat from any part that is left uncovered. Exposing the extremities - head, hands and feet - to harsh temperatures can lead to colds, chilblains and frost bite. Besides, the discomfort of being cold in class distracts children from their lessons.THE PLAN
Each winter gift pack consists of a pair of gloves, socks and a woollen hat. The small sizes for 635 girls cost ₹180 per pack and the medium size packs for 235 girls are ₹205 each. Once the Fundraiser is completed and the order is confirmed, Donatekart will deliver the items to Pardada Pardadi within a week - just in time for them to distribute them at the schools' Christmas celebrations on December 25th.
WALKING long distances from home to high school has its dangers in rural India - especially for adolescent girls. Help IHMP buy 50 cycles at ₹4,000 each so girls can ride to school, instead of dropping out.
EDUCATION is the best bet in breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty faced by families living off waste. Fund school kits for ₹389 each so their children have the tools to attend and stay in school.
UP to 100 children of Mumbai’s red light district find refuge in AAWC’s shelter - especially at night. Fund hygiene and health kits for the safe care of innocent toddlers and young girls.
THE winter months are harsh in rural Uttar Pradesh. Riding to school at 6am on cycles provided by PPES, the older girls face chilly winds through moist, open fields. Protect them and gift windcheaters for Xmas.
