    Apni Shala Foundation

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

80G tax benefits for INR donations


Hi! 

I'm Noel and for this Christmas season ( and New Year ) I will be supporting this innovative educational project by Apni Shala Foundation, that a friend of mine initiated. It works with children from low-income communities and help build their emotional, interpersonal and thinking skills.

The project has really inspired me  and I want more and more children to have access to it.  I wish we all had something like this during our school days. Watch the video below to know about these tiny bundles of positive and inspirational ideas, energy and work!

Did you like what you just saw? Here's why I urge you to become Secret Santa for this cause.

I believe that a programme like this could turn children into reflective, conscientious citizens and changemakers in our society. And Apni Shala Foundation designs and delivers such programmes for children from low-income communities every day of the year in Mumbai. This year, they're taking this to 200 children who have resolved to address 40 social issues ranging from community violence, alcoholism and addiction, right up to waste management. They will be putting in an entire year of effort to identify, investigate and try and resolve these local problems. And they need our help.

As official Secret Santa for Apni Shala, I'm looking to raise an amount that will help empower an entire class of children by enrolling them in this programme. If you want to offer these children an education you've always wanted for yourself, become a Secret Santa this Christmas!

All you need to do is click 'Donate' on this page and contribute a small amount to help me reach my goal. 

What happens after you donate?

You'll thereafter be informed about how you helped made a difference. 

  • You get the chance to interact with the children you supported and accompany them during their projects

  • You will receive email updates on stories from the field about how the children worked on these very serious issues

*The amount is excluding 8% fee charged by Milaap on every contribution.
