Story

Vishwajhanani Campaign for Fund-Raising to Combat COVID-19

Vishwajhanani is a non-profit organization, which aims to reach out to needy children & women through their various programs to make their lives better. Our prime focus is women & children who are in desperate need of helping hand including female infant, girl child, adolescent, mother, destitute women, battered women and elderly women with no support.

The ‘TRUST’ has been formed to primarily focus on the ‘GIRL CHILD’ and ‘WOMEN EMPOWERMENT’ but the scope of activities extends to help all the underprivileged irrespective of class or gender. Broadly the TRUST focuses on:
•Educating the girl child Providing necessities like clothes/uniforms/books for girl child
•Helping girls/women with vocational courses making them employable
•Counseling and help for students who want to study further Helping people who are looking for jobs
•Helping LBGT (Lesbians / Bisexuals / Gays / Transsexuals) integrate with society
•Helping the elderly who have been abandoned Helping women to get jobs like maids

In the times of global COVID-19 pandemic, Vishwajhanani intends to expand its area of work and help the government’s efforts to contain the spread of infection. Most vulnerable sections of the society are the Frontline workers, especially the Hygiene and Sanitation workers. In BBMP limits, there are over 30,000 pourakarmikas and 10000 additional unorganized/ contract workers who help keep Bangalore clean. They carry a high risk of infection.

We plan to provide five Face-masks and five pairs of rubber gloves to 10000 unorganized and contract workers. The cost of each mask is estimated at Rs.75/- and of each pair of gloves at Rs. 100/-. Total cost would be 10000x5x175 = Rs. 87,50,000/-.
Adding approximately 10% administrative and logistics cost, we are looking to raise Rs. 95,00,000/- (Rs. Nintyfive Lakhs only) for this noble purpose.
