Contribute Towards Clothing For 1,750 Children

Centre for Rural and Development Action (CREDA) is a non-profit, non-political and non-religious organization working for the children from very marginalized communities. Our organization was founded in the year 1982 by a group of Gandhian social workers.

Our NGO has so far educationally mainstreamed nearly 74.5 thousand children, which includes bonded child labour, child labour and out of school children. We have won several national and state level awards for our intervention for poor children. Govt. of India and the State Government has given honour to our NGO by putting us in several advisory and policy making committees as a member. Five documentary films have been produced on us by Govt. of India, UNDP and Japanese Broadcasting Corporation. These documentaries focus on our work for child labour and out of school children.

The children are brought to our Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) centres, where they are nurtured for few years and then mainstreamed into primary education. Meanwhile, the awareness and counseling of the families also continues. This helps the children not to go for child labour and family prefers for the education of the children. Our organization has limited resources and not in a position to provide clothing to the children. The parents too are unable for it. The winter temperature goes down as low as 4 to 10 degree Celsius and these poor children need proper clothing.

With present request, we will require INR 5,25,000 for 1,750 children i.e. INR 300 per child. We need the fund upto the end of October or at the beginning of November 2016. We plan to use the fund for purchasing of winter clothing for 1,750 children of the age group 3 to 5 years.

Dear Supporters,
I am Ankita, a community associate at Milaap. Here is an update on the children at CREDA foundation.

I spoke to Mr. Shamshad Khan, the secretary of the CREDA foundation and he said there are 1700 children between the age of 3-5 years who are attending school right now.
During the winters, the school ended at 2.30pm so that they all could go back home before it got very chilly outside.

 CREDA is still doing everything they can to ensure the growth and betterment of these children. As it is summer now the winter clothes are not a priority, however, they require sitting mats as the previous ones are all torn.

Thank you all for the support and please do spread the word.
