Join Us in Giving Wings To Kids Feet

If you walk in the by-lanes of Roshan Nagar, you'll see tiny kids laughing & running around chasing a kitty or playing hopscotch. However, most run around barefoot & are prone to infectious diseases that can be easily prevented by simply wearing footwear. 

The children come from families of labourers, street hawkers and scrap dealers who can barely afford three meals a day. They live in lanes which are narrower than your cupboard and houses that end as soon as they begin. There is barely a sewage system in place & open drains are right outside their homes. It puts them at direct risk for contaminating water borne infections. 

Most times, the children are left unattended & like all children, they find fun things to do anywhere. We go to amusement parks or the local swimming pool to play with water, the kids in Roshan Nagar play at open drains and with dirty water gushing out of washing machines. They play without footwear and it is a common sight to see multiple bruises on their little feet. 

This Daan Utsav - India's festival of giving, I am fundraising to gift recycled footwear to 500 children in Roshan Nagar, in DG Halli - a slum near Tannery road, Bangalore. 

The thought is to provide footwear that are durable and will last long. Green Sole refurbishes discarded shoes and converts them to long lasting footwear.

The cost of refurbishing and logistics for one footwear is 199 INR. Not only are the shoes long lasting, they do good to Mother Nature by keeping old footwear away from landfills & reducing carbon footprint. 

Check out Green Sole website here - http://www.greensole.in/Web/donate

The shoe sizes are already collected with the help of local volunteers in the area and the kids are waiting for probably their first footwear ever! I believe a little bit can go a long way so let's join together to gift them footwear to run without hurdles and play securely!

I am so grateful for the overwhelming support!! So much love to you all!

So far, I've placed an order for 493 pairs of refurbished footwear at Green Sole which is located in Mumbai & the footwear will reach Bangalore in 3 weeks time post which it will be distributed in the Roshan Nagar slum, thanks to your help <3 Other remaining funds will be used to buy soft baby shoes/ socks for infants. Update on this is coming soon! Stay tuned!

Once the footwear arrive, I shall post the date, location & time of distribution. I urge you all to join me to share the joy of giving with these little shiny stars. If you cannot be there in person then don't worry, I shall post pictures here ^_^

I am immensely thankful for all the love you are showering on these children who live in unsafe conditions. About 467 pairs of footwear has been sponsored through small & big donations - every bit lead to this! 33 more to go and I am confident we will reach this goal! My target is 1 lakh INR & to cover the bank charges & Milaap's processing fee, I'm raising my campaign goal by 12K. Any extra penny that will be left behind will be used to benefit more children. I request all of you to help me spread the word by sharing it with your friends & family on Facebook, Whatsapp & other social media platforms you're active on!

Attaching few pictures of the Roshan Nagar slum to understand the conditions these kids live in.
