Hello! I am Smriti, a mechanical engineer and a social worker. At Hamari Pahchan NGO, we work for the welfare of our society and try to make the world better and some lives beautiful.
 
Once known as the “Golden Bird”, India is a country of diverse cultures and people. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Kutch to Arunachal Pradesh, people in India are involved in farming. Around 58% of the Indian population has agriculture as their primary source of livelihood. India is the second-most populous country in the world and the most populous democracy. More than 50% of the population is below the age of 25, and more than 65% are under 35. Youth play a significant role in the nation’s development. But, in India, this youth, instead of being the strength, has become a drawback.

India’s GDP has increased by 50% since 2013, and then also more than one-third of malnourished children in the world live in India. The primary cause of malnutrition in India is its economic inequality. Around two-third of India’s population is poor. 68.8% of the people in India survive with less than Rs.150/- a day, and over 30% of the population stays with less than Rs. 90/- per day. These people sleep with an empty stomach on most nights, and when they get food, it’s the bare minimum. These people do not even know what a nutritious meal is.

When the country locked down in 2020, people were experimenting with food at home; but some did not have food because they could not go to their jobs. These people live a hand-to-mouth life. We, the privileged, often buy food and cannot consume it for some reason or the other, and it gets thrown away. According to a UN report, India wasted over 68 million tons of food in 2019. Just some thoughtful spending can avoid a majority of this waste.

Let us pledge not to take that one extra item on our plates and make sure it goes to a needy person. Starting my social journey was the best thing I did to myself, and trust me, it gives a feeling of contentment when you know you gave someone a joyous smile. Join hands with Hamari Pehchan to provide a nutritious meal to the people in need and have a serene feeling. Our goal is not to let anyone go to sleep hungry.

I am starting this fund-raiser to help our fellow citizens by providing them with a nutritious meal and making our India better. Every penny counts, so you can help me with whatever you can. We can, and we will do it! Thank you in advance!
