Unnatikirah was started in 2012 for children and women coming from the most deprived community living in Dwarka,New Delhi.
On the way to my work saw some children gathering some things from the garbage and eating it … Surprised at this act I enquired and found that they were collecting cake crumbs from the garbage , this was really a very disturbing sight and so I followed them to see where they lived and was welcomed by another surprise,many women were sitting in a garbage dump and segregating the waste. The men folks were loading it in big trucks.
Since then we have worked on developing their lifestyle by providing education to children through tuitions and Special Classes.
We are now proposing to conduct livelihood skilled developments to the mothers of these Children who are rag pickers.
We are planning to invest on opening a tailoring unit near to their settlement,through which they can learn tailoring,crochet,soft toy making and improve their standard of living.
Following are the details as to how the money will be spent:
We wanted to take a rented place for around Rs 2500 per month. Instructor for the above said programmes Rs1000 per month.
Travel and administrative expenses Rs 3000 per month.
Materials for Kurtis Rs 3000 per month
Teddy bear material Rs 3000 per month
Crochet materials Rs 2000 per month
Packing material Rs 1000 per month
We are planning to do this for a year with the funds we receive through milaap.
