The recent coronavirus outbreak has impacted our routine life and commitments in an unprecedented manner, however as most of us have the privilege of using this oppurtunity to take a break from our hectic lives, connect with families and catch up with old friends, learn new skills and indulge in recovering hobbies and passions, there is a vast underprivileged strata of society that has a colossal task at hand. Survival.
Our worst nightmares are being lived out as everyday routine for many, and their daily battle to survive is a realisation of something that stretches beyond our worst dreams.

Today’s Kalam Foundation, drawing inspiration from the People's President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam has been running Kalam Centers for slum children since 2017 and benefitting around 450 children on a daily basis. 

Kalam Center :

Established with the main objective of creating more 'Kalams' to lead the way forward, TKF volunteers go to slums and choose a group of students who study in government schools, in some cases, or who don't go to schools at all. From the same slum, a Mentor is employed and a “Kalam Center” is established either in the nearby community hall/school premises/rented place. Generally, the mentors are undergraduates or postgraduates. In these centers, the respective mentors provide after school support to the students for 2 hours per day.

Kalam Centers aim towards the holistic development of children, hailing from the under-priviledged section of the society. The project covers various aspects viz., academic education, vocational training, personality development, health tips, hygiene & nutrition awareness, career counselling, and extra-curricular activities.

We run centers in Riyasatnagar, Hussainialam, Dabeerpura, N.M.Guda, MM Pahadi, Farath nagar, Edi Bazaar, Falaknama, Kanchanbagh, Moinbagh, Bapu Nagar, Talabkatta & Babanagar.

Background of Children:

Most of the children have parents who are daily wage workers. Men are hawkers, vendors, construction workers, drive autos/rickshaws, etc. Some women do bangle making and embroidery or work as maidservants.

Impact of Lock Down:

As we know, the government has enforced a much needed lockdown all over the country because of which the daily wage earners are heavily affected. They are unable to generate any income for their livelihood. The government has drawn up schemes to provide support but that is still insufficient and does not reach everyone. 

Our Work:

We have had good rapport with the families of Kalam Center for Children for over 2 years which helps us better manage and coordinate our campaign in the adversely affected areas. Owing to the bond we have, it was decided that immedaite action be taken to be with them during these hard times and to support the ration required for their families during the lockdown period.


Each Ration Kit Contains :
10kg rice                    
5kg Atta                      
2kg toor dal                
Oil 1kg                        
Salt 1kg                          
Sugar 1kg                  
Mirchi power 200gm
Haldi 100gm    
Each Ration Kit costs Rs 1000.
We are planning to support 1000+ Families.

Thank You!
