I am fundraising to help these little superstars light up the stage and empower their mothers!

Why am I fundraising?

At Aarzoo, our aim is to provide professional level mentorship and training in performing arts to our children, helping them develop their skills and create new avenues for themselves. But our work does not end there. We also aim to provide life skills training to the mothers from the same communities. Mothers who have never had a chance to step out of their communities The objective is to train and prepare them to manage and run the final showcase event for their children. Through this training, we also wish to develop the child management skills in these mothers. 

  • 250 students have registered from 12 different schools across Delhi
  • 3 Theater, 5 Thematic Dances (group) and 2 Musical Plays have been shortlisted by professionals from National School of Dramatics and other award winning performers
  • Mothers from 7 different communities from across Delhi are now engaged in in event management and life skill development training. This also includes employability training 
Being a Teach for India fellow initiative, the success of this project deeply relies on the funds generated from you!

Why do we need the funds?

In the narrow alleys of Ram Nagar, Shahdara, lives Ritu. Living in a single room rented accomodation. At the outset, it would seem she has a regular life, with her husband and two children. But the reality is far from that. Her husband is perpetually bed ridden. He has terminal cancer. Mahi, the elder of the two children suffers from malnutrition and TB. Her brother is closely following her with a similar fate.

Ritu works homes to earn just enough to provide for one meal a day. Certainly not enough to feed the whole family. 

Imagine, Ritu being empowered! learning skills that will help her follow her passion of stiching and making scarfs. She has the talent, all she needs is the training and practice. Someone to guide her and make her dreams come true. We need these funds so that we can help Ritu realize her dreams and help her provide for her family. These funds will help us find her a trainer and mentor who can help her become successful. The funds will also help her setup her work.

Help us in helping her and many more mothers in the communities of Delhi to follow their dreams and passions.
