Help Feeding 100 Slum Area children....One time meal

Tax benefits

I am a Bank Manager and associated with social work.  I like to spend time with these poor children whom we (I and my friends) teach daily. These children from slum area are very talented and intelligent in studies. However, due to their poor family conditions they are not going to school and they work along with their parents and apart from earning they also do home making. This full time tight work schedule repel them from studying.
For this problem we have initiated a a campaign where we have for now, selected 100 bright students whom we provide day meal so that they do not skip classes(as their parents go to work and they have to work at home and take care of their siblings etc). Their parents also feel less burdened about their child.

As we have money constraints(because we also pay for their studies, books, stationery etc), we collect  2000/- from one of the members of our group. We provide them different combination day to day basis which includes either a sabzi- roti/chapati/parantha/poori or Dal-Rice.
After trying this meal system our students are increasing every day. They come to study in the greed for good food. This also motivates them to study because every week ends we organize quizzes, tests etc and if class performs well then on Saturday they get a good treat followed by the gifts.
and Sunday is their sports day/extra curricular days.

Therefore, we request you all to contribute for atleast their one day meal(i.e Rs 2000/-) or if any body wishes to provide raw food/readymade or if anybody wishes to prepare food at their home and donate, can do that. We will be grateful to you. If you are residing in Ghaziabad and have excess food then please contact 9599044255.

Any kind of contribution- be it Financial or Raw food or Readymade food will be highly appreciated.

We have calculated basic food items dal/sabzi/kadi/peas and roti/poori/parantha/rice that costs us :
 20/- per plate per day for 100 students= 2000/- a day
2000/- for a year = 720000/-(sweets and other food items occasionally)
 If you all will support we will provide more nutritional food items.

*New- I also wish to provide them a Glass of Milk or Egg to these children. It will build their immune system and help them growing as per their age-body-weight  ratio. 

Thanks

Dear Well Wishers,

Sorry for updating so late. Since covid 19 things have been changed a lot along with a new challenge. As COVID-19 lockdown took away their family's income and still fighting to earn 2 time meal for family. Their parents started to send their little children on work just to earn for 2 time meal. It was really heart breaking to see that we worked so hard to bring to a level up in their lives in the field of health and education. Earlier, these families stopped to send their little ones for child labour and now we were on a verge to loose it all. Once again children were pushed to work. So, I decided that I will not take my step back and along with friends started a new project "Main Bhi Hu Shikshak" with a some aim to teach children while sitting at home. Idea is that that ' if they cannot go to school, lets bring school at their home.'
With this initiative we are training elder children to teach younger children at home. We are also taking care of their health by providing regular one time meals to them.
I am currently providing daily cooked meals & juices to 300 little children & their families in slums and with your support I want to extend this meal system to other slums as well so that parents do not send their little children to work. Now parents are stopping their little ones and sending them to home school run by elder children living in same slums. 
I request you all to watch the video given below and you will understand it all :


   
 


I request you all to keep your support so that I can feed more of them and discourage them to rejoin childlabour due to COVID 19 situation.

Taruna.

Dear Well Wishers,

It was all going fine till last month, children were leading a happy and healthy life. For the first time in life, they got enrolled in schools and were about to give their first formal exams and to be promoted to the next class. However, the sudden outbreak of Corona Virus shed all their dreams and due to a nationwide lockdown of 21 days, their family’s sufferings have increased as lockdown led to the shutdown of all the factories/industries/commercial establishments, etc. which took away their livelihood.

These families cannot even run to their native places and are now dependent on people like us in order to feed their families.
This cannot be considered less than a national emergency situation as a large number of population is unemployed and have no proper facility of buying the basic necessities majorly food. We fear that if the situation remains the same, there health and immunity will degrade and a large population will be open to various other severe diseases if not CORONA. I was providing a one-time meal to more than 200 children and now I have more than 500 families which seek upon my help as I cannot differentiate between my children & their families and leaving others in this time of menace.

For a clear understanding, Let me mention few major points which will help you to imagine the scary situation they are facing in Jhuggi’s where on an average min 5 to 10 people are present in a family and are forced to remain at a very small area they call their home. Problems they are facing such as:

  • Scarcity of Food: They are in dire need of food to feed their families jobs have been taken away, no source of earning, no ration card(as they are migrated labours). It has become harder for them to feed a family consisting of 5 to 10 members.
  • No drinking Water Facility: There no water facility in these areas. Earlier they used to fetch water from various places nearby (500 mtr to 1km ) and now they get just one Van in a day making it harder to carry day to day routine. Now they are using dirty water for carrying on day to day routine work.
  
  • No Money -No earning sources left-Low Buying Capacity:  Maids are not allowed to enter into the societies and many of them have not received their salaries as their masters have left for their native places leaving them with no money and food. Price Hike of essential commodities by commercial shopkeepers are breaking their bones: Most of them are migrated labours and are not enrolled for ration card due to lack of documentation. They have left no option but to buy food on a double rate from the market.
  • Open to other diseases/illness/infections: As they are now living at home with less facility of water, sanitation etc. they are open to other diseases (organ-related )/illness/malnutrition due to unhygienic conditions, uncleanliness and using dirty water for carrying on day to day routine work  etc.
  • Lack of Knowledge and buying capacity of COVID-19 and protective measures such as masks, sanitizers, soaps, social distancing etc.
PROVIDING SOLUTION:
  • We are trying to handle the above by focussing on major issues by  distributing nutrition-rich meals such as readymade breakfast items and snacks such as Bread, butter, Milk, Biscuits and Namkeens, juice packets, fruits etc 

   
  •  Raw and cooked(both or either) food for lunch and dinner, etc.
  •  We are also trying to provide them safe drinking water in some places.
  •  Also distributing essential protective and hygiene-related material such as masks, soaps & shampoos, Dettol & savlon bottles, antibacterial creams(so that small children remain safe from other bacterial infections), Sanitary Pads etc.
 
I am putting all my efforts to benefit all these families, listening to their needs and trying to fulfilling them but I fear that I may not be able to do it for long as the demands are getting high. Therefore, I would need your help to buy things and carry on my work when it is required most and I am doing it along with my job.
