At a time when the world is battling one of the biggest pandemics it has seen, at a time when our parents are constantly keeping a check on our sanitation, health and nutrition,There are children across the country who are struggling to get access to basic water, sanitation and hygiene facilities.
As the virus spreads, millions of children from underserved communities are at a greater risk of facing homelessness, hunger and mental health problems. When our schools shut, we got access to online classes. But many children like us, don’t have that privilege. They’re missing out on a safe space to spend their day in, on after school care, extracurricular activities, mid-day meals, and of course their education – which is crucial to helping break this cycle of poverty.
They’re children just like us and we’re excited to be bringing a change in their lives this month. We’re starting online classes, we’re getting them their ration, we’re connecting with them through phones and WhatsApp and therefore, we’re bridging that gap that we saw deepening in this crisis. In addition to this, we’re spreading awareness amongst our communities on the importance of handwashing practices and other necessary precautions to stay safe. Everything will be in accordance with government protocols and with all necessary permissions.
But we can’t do this alone.
We need your help. As we raise funds for all these little and big dreams that we have for children like us, we’re requesting you to make that little contribution. No amount is small, we promise.
Your little contribution can help us reach out to many children like us and ensure many happier, creative and healthier childhoods even in the midst of trying times like these!
