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 save their families from hunger in 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 the 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.

COVID-19- Response to Pandemic situation:
Our work with RTE places us in close contact with the under privileged communities. This being the admission season, we were actively working towards spreading awareness about RTE through our helpline. We were also conducting an Impact assessment to study the impact of RTE on the children and their families. When the pandemic hit, with calls about RTE, we also started getting calls from families on our helpline number requesting us for support. We received some direct calls from communities and families seeking support as well. We are currently working with approximately 3 lakh families in Uttar Pradesh and in a span of one day mapped 300 families who needed urgent assistance with ration. This being an emergency situation, and the target audience already in distress, we tried to seek support from the Government for delivery of services. But due to the scale of the issue when government invited us to assist them we decided to reach out ourselves.

The families we are targeting are from economically weaker section and the disadvantaged groups of the society. They earn less than INR 8350/month and are from the lower strata of the society. The adults in these families are engaged as daily wage labourers, agricultural labourers, small shopkeepers, rickshawalas, thelawalas etc. All these businesses are closed in the present scenario leaving them with no options of income pushing the families further towards the hunger pit. Some of these families have widows, disabled, old people and mothers with little children, who need immediate support.

We are trying to reach out to as many families as possible. Our idea is to provide a family of five with approximately 10 days meals for thrice a day
Till now we have reached to 2100 families in Uttar Pradesh, providing 3,90,000 meals

We target to reach a total of 8000 families by end of May and your support will help sustain our mission, ensuring that families facing the distress situation the most do not go to sleep with a hungry stomach. Sponsoring such a families' meals today will go a long way in ensuring that their Right to Food is duly delivered to them.

One food kit costs Rs 1500 that can sustain one family of five for 2 weeks. 
You may chose to sponsor as many number of families as you like.
We are glad to announce that every new donor will be matched with a contribution from two respected HNI donors who would add another Rs 200. So please donate in large numbers. Every little contribution counts.
DONATE NOW AND SPONSOR FAMILIES' MEALS!

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!

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!

RightWalk Update | June 2020 | Dry Ration and Education Kit Distribution | Uttar Pradesh

Dear Friends, Supporters and Well-wishers

Greetings from RightWalk Foundation!

We are truly greatful to each one of you who have contributed to our campaign and enabled us in serving thousands of families in distress across the State.

We are still engaged in distributing dry ration. With the migrants' returning to their base locations and staggered operations of business, several people are sleeping hungry and the needs for distribution of food kits is higher than ever. We are trying to reach to as many untapped locations as possible.

Over the last few days we have distributed kits to Tharu tribe residents of Kalendar Kheda, snake charmer community, migrants at quarantine center Mohanlanganj and migrants from Chhattisgarh among many others.

We also distributed education kit with stationary items to school going children from disadvantaged communities to help them sustain their education during lock down. The bags filled with stationary brought a board smile to the weary faces!
