Every winter pack will gift health and comfort to a school girl!
This fundraiser has been extended until the end of the month!
The funds raised will cover the expense of 70 small size and 61 medium size winter gift packs!
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.
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.
KEEPING children from ragpicker communities in school prevents child labour, drug addictions and also early marriage. Help provide evening support classes for 25 youngsters at ₹12,000 per child for a year.
OPEN windows at night let in cool, fresh air... plus a swarm of mosquitoes. With summer approaching, fund netting on dormitory windows, so Baale's girls can sleep with them open without worrying about diseases.
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.
