Living in sub-human conditions, where even basic necessities like food remain a luxury, their eyes glitter with hope and excitement when our team conducts a food drive. They are served quality food for as many servings as they desire. "Bharat mata ki jai", they chant with enthusiasm. But behind those smiles, they hide some dreams and aspirations.
A girl wants to be a doctor because the children in the slum fall sick too often. Son of a guard wants to be an army officer, a girl has a thing for singing, but will they be able to live those dreams?
We want to become light in their life which illuminates their future prospects.

Nilay, along with his team is serving many underprivileged people and daily wage workers with groceries and vegetables during this period of Lock-down as they do not have jobs to earn and feed their families.
If not us? who?
If not now? when?
