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 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.
- The kit includes basic necessary items such as cooking oil 2Ltr, Daal 5Kg, Rice 5Kg, Wheat 5Kg, Soaps 4Nos, Sanitizers 4Nos & Basic Medicines.
- Each kit price is roughly 1000/- And the targeted no.of families in the slum and surroundings is about 2000
OUR WORK IS APPRECIATED MANY TIMES
