#SupportOurHeroes | Help families of martyred soldiers

Behind every breath of free air lie countless stories of valour and sacrifice. Right from carving out our own country to fighting for it every day at the frontiers, hundreds of martyrs have laid down their lives for us.

As a tribute to the fallen heroes of our country, Paytm has partnered with Milaap and Vasantharatna Foundation to uplift the families of martyred jawaans of the Indian Army.

Note: All the contributions made through the Paytm wallet, will be matched by Paytm, thereby doubling your impact and maximizing the support these families need.

When a soldier sacrifices his life to protect the nation, their families are often left with little means of financial support. Vasantharatna Foundation aims to empower women from martyrs' families. It helps them rediscover their potential, provides financial and emotional counselling in addition to legal support as well as education and training for their children. It also aims to bring public awareness to the sacrifices made by every soldier on the borders.

How can you help
  • Make a contribution to the campaign and support the families of martyrs
  • Start your own support campaign on Milaap and encourage your friends and family to contribute
  • Share the campaign via email, and on your social media profiles such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.
All funds raised will help provide educational scholarships, memorial awards, outbound learning programmes, computer basics, English communication and vocational training for families of martyrs.

Dear supporter,

Thank you for this overwhelming support towards the families of our brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our country. Your support means a lot to these families.

We will be utilizing the funds before the 31st of March 2017 for the following programs:

  • Rs. 10 lakhs in support of our empowerment program for 30 Vir Naris (Wives of martyred Jawans and junior officers)
  • Remaining funds will go towards an educational scholarship of Rs.30,000  each to around 20 children of Vir Naris between the age of 6 and 12. This sum will be put away  in a fixed deposit in the name of the child and given back to the child when he or she turns 18 years old. The interest from this F.D. will be credited periodically to their Savings Bank Account.
We will share periodic updates about the campaign. We also welcome all the donors to get in touch with us or visit us to get more details.

We thank all our donors once again for their generous support.
