Our 20 Kids need a Superhero. Be their Superhero

This year drought has taken a disastrous form in many states of our country. Sadly, Marathwada is emerging as farmer’s suicide capital of India. The loss of a family member is a brutal blast to the near and dear ones of the victim. At such times children belonging to such families become the most vulnerable of the lot. These kids are exposed to many threats and dangers like child labour, child trafficking, sexual abuse, extreme poverty, physical and mental abuse and homelessness. Snehwan, the solo initiative of Ashok Deshmane who has been in the theatre of this tragedy, aims to be the provider and nurturer of children of drought affected farmers. 
He has rescued 20 kids and given them shelter in Pune, but he realized rescuing them is not enough. They deserve a better- life with dignity, a home filled with care, love, along with health, nutrition, education and vocational training facilities to fulfill their dreams.  Snehwan identifies the individual’s talent and guide these kid to uncover themselves and nurture  their true knowledge areas to the fullest.
Simple Act of giving small amount can actually make you their Superhero, their Rescue Ranger.

Dear Supporters,

I am Shruti Sunderraman, a Fellow with Milaap. I visited Snehwan and met Ashok and the children he's currently rehabilitating.

They are a boisterous bunch of 25 kids, all of whom Ashok is sending to a nearby school using the funds raised. Snehwan is nestled cozily amongst lush trees, open grounds and the green pastures of a village-like community in Bhosari, Pune. When I enter the premises, Ashok welcomes me with tea and conversation. I learn that Ashok has quit his 9 to 5 corporate job recently to take Snehwan forward full-time.

Ashok and the children outside Snehwan.

I step out to join the kids who are sitting on a small playground outside Snehwan. Ashok gathers them around and they flock toward me with unusual discipline. They introduce themselves with their full names, standards in school and the region they are from. The kids then sing rhymes, prayers and songs for me. They demonstrate their physical abilities through gymnastics. 

Ashok, along with his family, has disciplined them into waking up early and teaching them yoga at 6 a.m. The children are always eager to go to school and are happy to have an opportunity to do so.

Ashok is continually trying to rescue more children from Marathwada and providing a future to look forward to. He has expressed immense gratitude for all your help and welcomes any supporter to visit Snehwan.

He has requested for continued support to help more children and sustain the existing ones' quality of life.
