Help this smile left alone in the world

This is Madhav, a 4 years old, near orphan kid that needs your support. He has moved in my neighbor's house about 3 month ago and is loved by the whole neighborhood. He lives with his maternal grandmother who tries to take care of him, send him to school everyday and taking him to the park every evening to play with other kids.The reason I mentioned to him as a near orphan is because his father died last year in a car accident .This happened in September 2015 and then, Madhav and his mother were left in this world to survive.
They lived in Madhav's paternal grandparent's house for 3 months and during such a difficult time, his mother did not give it a second thought and got married in January 2016. No one opposed as they thought it was a step towards Madhav's future, but it turned out to be something completely different. Madhav lived with his mother and step-father for about 7 months and afterwards, in August 2016, his mother left Madhav with his maternal grandmother Kalawanti, an old lady that has lived in my neighborhood for more than 10 years. After leaving him there, she left the country and is now living in Gurgaon with her husband. Since then, Madhav has been living with his grandmother , who tries to fulfill all the needs of the young kid, and has never heard from Madhav's mother ever since. Currently, her only source of income is the maid work she does in 3 houses.
 Madhav is very much loved by the whole neighborhood and receives all the support the people can give, be giving him lunch and dinner whenever he visits their homes.
We all can agree that this is not the lifestyle his father would have dreamed of giving him, can't we? He deserves to study in a good school and get good standard of study along with new clothes and a stable lifestyle. For this little kid, we all can open our hearts and come together to help. We all can join hands and provide the basic amenities every kid requires.
I hope to receive a positive response from you all and would like to say one last thing, if even a 100 people would donate 500 each, that could mean a lot to Madhav.Even a share you do can prove to be a great help for him.

There are a few ways in which these funds can be utilized, like for his a good school has fee somewhere around 15000 annually; other than that, all the little expenses of a kid can account for a lot more like clothes,medicines other stuff; even his grandmother serves in 3 houses and gets paid a total of 900 rupees monthly, which are not sufficient for them both so I want to gather these funds and give them to his grandmother as she is the one who can better decide where and how these funds should be used.

Dear Supporters,

The campaign for Madhav has been a successful one and I am grateful for the support shown by everyone of you. Now, all that needs to be done is the funds be rightly utilised for little Madhav's future. Per Milaap policies, it is best to transfer funds to beneficiary's account to maintain complete transparency, which in this case is, Madhav or his grandmother, Kalawanti.

That said, Kalawanti ji does not have a bank account since the time she moved to India during the partition of 1947. Having worked at various construction sites, she never felt the need an account for earnings so small. She is not registered with the Indian Govt as a citizen of the country and possesses no identity proof. Upon asking her about why she has never bothered to have a bank account, she said that she earns 900 rupees every month , so what use will be a bank account to her anyway? Nevertheless, Madhav has an Aadhar Card as well as birth certificate, but I can't open his bank account with these proofs as he is a minor.

The funds are yet to be utilised. After speaking to Milaap team, here's how we can proceed with the funds raised so far.
  1. Since 25 of you put in your trust in me to help little Madhav, the funds can be transferred to my personal account and I fullfill the promise made to Madhav's grandma. 
  2. Or the other option I see is to transfer the funds to Madhav's parental grandmother, Shoba ji, (who is also the only blood relative of Madhav after Kalawanti ji).
The choice is yours. I request you to please let us know by replying to this email, and marking a copy to Your response will be truly valued and will help us take this campaign forward.
