Why am I fundraising?
Aham Bhumika is a registered NGO working in two villages adjacent to each other namely Borda and Mahabadia, in the outskirts of Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh.
Besides pre - schooling of rural children, the organisation runs another art and craft initiative in the same villages. The NGO imparts Craft education to 30 rural girls who learn paper quilling, jute work and crochet craft.
In this Art group their are 10 rural children who are practicing Gond Art , a tribal art form of Central India. The children of the village are learning art and craft with immense enthusiasm. Before the intervention of Aham Bhumika use of paint , brushes, canvas, Paper quilling tools, Jute, Crochet and threads etc. was a distant dream for these children . And also the materials were not available / accessible to these rural children who are talented by birth.
At the moment more than 40 children are learning art and craft in the village based activity centre.
The children involved in the activity of painting are also doing wonderful art work.
The main aim of this initiative is to develop creativity among the rural children and encourage them to learn more art forms and in future pursue their career in the field of art and craft.
To continue this initiative we need funds for the following purposes:
1. White wash of existing activity centre. The 2 rooms where the activities of art and craft are conducted need to be white washes and than to be painted by the budding Artists of Aham Bhumika.
2. Purchase of Fabric colours, brushes, drawing sheets, canvas, pencils, colour pencils, rubbers, art and craft magazines, sketch books and drawing copies.
3. To organise Art workshops and have hands on knowledge of art from the established tribal Artists.
4. Purchase of Crochet threads, quilling papers , quilling tools, Fevicol, Crochet tool, thread and Jute .
