Shilpa* is HIV+ and knows exactly what happened to her. When her mother died, her father’s new wife did not approve of her and mistreated her.
Chetan and Vinay are best friends. They are both deaf and mute, and yet bicker like all friends do.
Sneha* is twelve years old. She was born to a 16-year-old mother. She has already experienced sexual abuse, child labour, and an alcoholic father...
There are scores of children like Sneha, Sasi, Shilpa, Sneha, Chetan and Vinay. The boys live with 180 other kids and need beds, hearing aids, and study desks. Shilpa stays with 38 others and needs computers, beds, and a TV. Sneha’s NGO houses 250 others. Each of them has a story. Each of them is supported by organisations doing their best to improve their lives. Each of these organisations needs support. Everyone is united in the aim of expanding horizons and encouraging potential.
When dealing with kids from marginalised environments, even small amounts of money can be life-changing. Many of these organisations work towards not just providing shelter and an education, but empowering these children to face the world with confidence and self-assuredness. This festive season, do your bit to enrich their lives. All it takes is a school bag or water bottle, a TV or a study desk, a guitar or camera.
This Christmas, BeingYou is trying to spread the good cheer as far and wide as we can. We are hoping to provide these organisations with the infrastructure and logistical support needed for them to change lives. For us to do the best we can, we need you. This holiday season, do your bit to show that every child counts. Help children who deserve equality of access and opportunity. Over the next few days, as we bring these stories, step up to help the organisations that support them. Be generous, spread the word, share the post, and help us achieve our target. Here is a chance to come together and make the lives of scores of children better.
This Christmas, be the best Santa Claus in town!
