We are a group of six students from Vidyashilp Academy in Bangalore (Sahil Giria, Aryan.A, Abhiraj.K, Ananya.B, Gunjan.R, Veer.KC) who with the help of our mentor, Ms. Asha, are trying to make a positive change in today’s society for which we have tied up with a foundation called Sparsha trust.
Sparsha trust provides homes and basic requirements for the needy and unprivileged children across the city of Bangalore. There are approximately three hundred boys currently spread across the city who are staying in different locations, but the trustees are not able to pay the rent... Hence the trust has bought a land at Devanahalli, near BIAL Airport,the project name is Makkaladhama- A Sanctuary for Childen... and have decided to build a new facility so that all the three hundred boys currently living in different locations can be brought together under one roof.
What do we plan on doing to help these children?
Well, we plan on providing the most essential and most basic necessity of life ”WATER” by setting up a Borewell.
Water is crucial for the growth and development and hydration of the body. It carries nutrients through the body and helps in various metabolic processes. It is also useful for ones domestic needs and can be used to grow food as well.
We plan on constructing a Borewell in the facility so as to provide a source of water and also detect the purity of the groundwater so that it can be consumed or saved for various purposes by the three hundred children at the new facility.
The total cost required for the construction of the borewell adds up to 4 Lakhs, 2.5 lakhs for drilling and 1.5 lakhs for pumping, which we plan on raising.
By doing this we are not only helping these children, but also providing a long term solution to various problems from basic hygiene to the nutrition of each child which will be sustainable.
Join us today and help us make a change in our society by helping these children, and help us leave a positive impact on the world as we work towards making it a better one.
