Hello All!

My name is Shikhar Soni. I happen to run a group named Navoday Group. The idea of doing the best for our underprivileged popped in my mind when I was surfing through youtube and I came across a video in which a person was helping poor people and since then the video started revolving in my mind and it was then when I  decided to do social work and help poor people. I got my foot in the door when I was 16. When I decided to follow my hunch, I wanted to do something for those people not because everyone does it, because It calms my soul.

It was Christmas eve when I along with my friends distributed chocolates and pastries with our own pocket money and the smiles in return were priceless. After this activity, we started to celebrate many festivals with these children like gifting them diyas and clothes on Diwali.
 We started getting support and from other people so by this support, we started doing this activity more often according to the fund we had. Gradually we also started to empower women of slums by spreading awareness regarding menstruation and other related topics, also we supported the unemployed by giving them employment.

We had started with a bunch of 4 friends and now we are a family of 40 members who work for the betterment of poor people, also spread awareness and we named this family as NAVODAY GROUP with the motto of BEING THE VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS. We also started projects in support of government like SWACHH BHARAT ABHIYAN, reducing the plastic usage, climate change issues, tree plantation.

Recently, when the malady has cordoned us from all the sides, we delivered food to about 2000 rightful people and also arranged a vehicle for the way back to their home for people who came to town from their villages. Till now we have reached to about 15000 poor people and helped them.

We have only one rule that never demands the fund from the donor. We have managed all these projects in the fund which we have and also sacrifice our pocket money for this kind of activity. We are always open to those who want to work with us and there is no eligibility to join this family.

But there are still thousands more who are struggling to survive and hundreds of hungry children sleeping with an empty stomach. We need your support to help as many daily wage workers as possible so that we all can fight Coronavirus and hunger together.
