Help Covid-19 hit daily wagers (RTE) feed their families in UP

We supported many Khushirams study in the same school as Tina and get access to quality education. With this pandemic situation, children like Khushiram again need our support. It is time to help feed their families and enable these children sustain their learning during this Covid-19 national lock-down situation.

Alignment with RightWalk's work:
Our work has been in the domain of institutional distribution of welfare schemes to beneficiaries. Our mandate is making legislative rights accessible and delivered to the eligible communities and people. We are involved in working towards provision of Right to Education to people from weak socio economic backgrounds and disadvantaged groups. Through this project we will try to ensure that the Right to Food of these communities is also made accessible in these trying times.
With access to food, we are not deviating from our core area of work. We also want to help these children sustain their learning in this situation and hence will also be engaged in distribution of education kits being ‘Education to their Doorstep’ with our food kits distribution.

COVID-19- Response to Pandemic situation:
Our work with RTE places us in close contact with the under privileged communities. As the pandemic hit, our helpline number overflowed distress calls from these families. With the helpline, we also received individual calls from many families seeking support. It indicated to us the faith our communities placed in us and we could not let them down.
We thank the support received from our donors through Milaap crowd funding and some individual funders. They have enable us to reach to 4700 families in Uttar Pradesh, providing 10,91,250 meals till now.
Being on the field, first hand witnessing the challenges these families face daily shook us and motivated us to work even harder. We met little children on the field who should be studying, rather they were helping their mothers lift the bags of food items to take home. On inquiring, the parents mentioned that they had no money to support their child’s education. They were unable to make internet services and basic stationary available to the children. It made us realize that with the families being unable to procure food, the children were also unable to access education.
Even with the school buildings closed, the teachers are trying to teach through online classes reaching out to children using various platforms. But if the parent is unable to provide the child with access to these platforms or with basic educational amenities the child will drop out from the process of learning. And by the time the schools re-open their interest in education would be lost and a sense of de-motivation would prevail among them.
This got us thinking. After struggling for their admissions under RTE provision we could not let our children’s education be negatively impacted. We brainstormed and decided that since we were going out on the field distributing food kits, we could also distribute education kits with necessary items for our children which will help sustain their learning in lockdown. It will bring ‘education at their doorstep’. Our education kit will have copies, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, crayons and story books.
We will continue our distribution of food kits adding education kit distribution with it. We will engage in 'Home delivery of education and food at the doorstep of covid affected families'.
You have helped us before and we seek your support again. We target to reach a total of 10000 families and their children. Your backing will help sustain our mission, ensuring that the future generation of our country is engaged in the process of learning and they and their families do not go to sleep with a hungry stomach. Sponsoring such a child’s education and meals for their families today will go a long way in ensuring that they can exercise their Right to Education and Right to Food and the cycle to learning does not come to a halt.
One education kit costs Rs. 350 that can sustain a child’s education during this lock down period. And our one food kit costs Rs. 780 that can sustain a family of five for approximately 10 days.
You may choose to sponsor as many number of children and families as you like. Please donate in large numbers. Every little contribution counts!

Thank you very much for your contribution. We are trying to feed as many people on margins as possible. Covid has pushed many people into poverty and hunger. Their livelihoods have not been revived yet and many are forced to starve.

Your support is highly valuable!

RightWalk Update | July 2020 | Dry Ration Kit Distribution | Uttar Pradesh

Dear Friends, Supporters and Well-wishers

Greetings from RightWalk Foundation!

We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each one of our contributors who have enabled us serve close to 4700 families across the State.

We are happy to announce that the match based funding with Aavishkaar has now been closed. The distribution utilizing the received funds is being carried out presently.

We have further expanded our distribution location to the districts of Barabanki and Tanda with the support from some individual volunteers at these locations.

In Lucknow we were able to reach some more remote and untouched locations of Abrar Nagar, Ashraf Nagar and Rakabganj. We have successfully carried out the distribution at these locations.

Also to mention that our decision to brand our packets for RTE admission campaigning also paid off. Over the last several days we have received many admission query calls on our helpline number mentioning that they saw the admission information on food packets and wanted to inquire more. We reached out to each one of them explaining them the application and admission process.

Sharing some pictures from our distribution drive.
       
Requests are pouring in from many localities and districts and we are trying our level best to serve each one of them.

In case anyone of you wants a copy of their 80G receipt, please fill in the form here and we will email you the receipts.

Thanks and looking forward to your continued support!

RightWalk Update | July 2020 | Dry Ration Kit Distribution | Uttar Pradesh

Dear Friends, Supporters and Well-wishers

Greetings from RightWalk Foundation!

We are truly thankful to each one of you who have contributed to our campaign and enabled us to serve meals to thousands of families across the State.

With the support received through the campaign and Aavishkaar's match based funding we will now be able to provide kits to 1000 more families over the next two weeks.

We have been distributing ration kits to the needy since the time lock down hit. All this while we didn’t brand our ration packets and that was a conscious decision. However, as lock down opened, our Helpline Manager suggested to use these packets to campaign about RTE and Helpline number as applications are still open till July 10th. So, we decided to act on this idea and utilize the space available on the packets for our RTE campaigning.

Our office space has currently become our storage house and packaging station of kits with work going on in full fervor. All distribution is being coordinated from our office itself.

In the meantime, we also got the opportunity to expand our ration distribution drive to the districts of Kanpur and Ghaziabad with support from Robin Hood Army (RHA) volunteers. Thanks to them we were able to support rickshaw puller community and migrant laborers  at these locations.

Thanks again and looking forward to your support!
