Donate a hygiene kit at ₹517 and a health kit at ₹930.
This fundraiser has been extended until the end of the month!
Growing up in an environment of poverty and oppression - where the sex trade takes priority - is not conducive to a child’s overall welfare. At the AAWC shelter, they try to compensate for this deprivation. While kits of nappies, soap, shampoo and cotton towel will keep toddlers clean and comfortable, a gift package of a steel plate, spoon, oil, rice and tur dal will provide basic nutrition which often escapes young daughters of sex workers.THE PLAN
If the fundraiser is 100% successful, Donatekart will provide 50 hygiene kits for toddlers at ₹517 each, and 50 health kits for adolescent girls at ₹930 each, benefiting 100 children with provisions for a month. Donatekart will procure the goods and deliver them to AAWC within a week of getting the order confirmation - and well in time for the new year.
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.
MOST in Calcutta Rescue's schools live below the poverty line and look forward to the nutritious lunch they're given. Give ₹253 - the price of two coffees - and buy a day's staples for a class of 30 children.
WOOLLENS come at a price - but should not cost a poor child her health. Help PPES gift a hat, gloves and socks under ₹400 a pack to all their 870 primary school girls to keep them warm, and well, this winter.
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.
