Why am I fundraising?
Only Human Group (OHG) is a forum for people who have always wanted to do their bit for the society but lacked a reliable medium to do so. We at OHG strive to bring such like minded individuals, from all walks of life, together and pool their resources and efforts to bring smile on the faces of orphan kids.OHG has been associated with two institutions in Thane:
1) Ma Niketan - A home for children (Over 300 children)
2) Aasra (Over 15 children)
Both these institutions are dedicated to the welfare of orphan kids and have committed themselves to providing education and shelter to orphan kids. Ma Niketan & Aasra are not for profit organisations that rely solely on donations from generous citizens of the society to ensure a smooth and uniterrupted flow of their support to orphan kids.
We at OHG try and do our bit to pool resources of individuals associated with us and pass the same to Ma Niketan and Aasra to meet their various needs, including but not limited to, groceries, clothes, medicines, stationery, repairs & maintenance etc.
OHG organises an annual event at Ma Niketan that involves calling various artists (professional dancers, singers, pottery artists etc.) to perform in front of the kids, arranging dinner for over 300 kids, goodies and gifts for kids etc. This event is to be held on 20th September, 2015 and we intend to raise funds for the same to make up for the shortfall of funds we face currently.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
OHG's annual anniversary event requires a substantial amount of money to be smoothly executed.
Despite our best attempts and wishes of our generous donors, there is likely to be a shortfall of funds. Hence, we are reaching out to all the good samaritans on Milaap to help us achieve our motto of spreading smiles among orphan kids.As per our estimate, the cost for the same works out to Rs. 300 per kid. The total works out to Rs. 96,000 (320 kids * Rs. 300).
The funds raised through Milaap would be utilised for organising this event.
1) How does this benefit the kids?A: The kids get to interact with the outside world in an informal setup and the artists that perform at the event act as a role model for the kids and help them explore their hidden talents besides academics.
2) Can I attend OHG's annual event even without donating for the cause?
A: Yes! We need people to spend time with the kids. That is equally important, if not more, than donating for the cause.
3) Can I donate in kind?
A: Yes! Clothes, Groceries, Vegetables etc are always required at both Ma Niketan and Aasra.
4) Where are these two institutions based?
A: Thane, Mumbai
5) Does OHG have a setup in cities other than Mumbai?
A: No. We would love to spread our wings but for now we have restricted our area of operations to Mumbai.
6) How do I know for sure my money actually reaches the intended beneficiaries?
A: We would be more than happy to be blessed with your presence at this event and help you review the utilisation of funds.
7) What if my question isn't a part of FAQs?
A: We are just a call away for all your queries/comments/suggestions. Please feel free to reach out to 9833028542.
