Raising funds for education of 300+ opportunity deprived children

Hi, My name is Siya Pandit. In the summer of 2019, I visited India. However, unlike all the other trips to India that I’ve taken, this one left a big impact on me for one reason. I had the opportunity to spend some time with kids in an NGO program called  AID FARIDABAD (  http://www.aidfaridabad.org ).

These kids were from slum areas. They have so little, yet are so full of life. When I got there, they were so excited to learn and play with me and my brother. Despite the hardships that they face, they persevere and understand the importance of education. They all want to move on from where they are in their lives and go on to great things. I believe that every kid deserves a chance to learn. However, there are some basic necessities they need which can help them in achieving their dreams. I decided to start a fundraiser and raise money for solar fans, uniforms, school bags, and stationery items. These kids are exposed to extremely high temperatures and it is proven that heat reduces mental concentration and focus. Also, I chose solar fans as they are environmentally friendly and can be my small contribution to the cause of climate change which is also a cause I believe in.

I found AID Faridabad to a good partner in my cause.  AID Faridabad operates six schools in Faridabad. Their objective is to remove illiteracy from India and aim for a 100% literacy rate at least in primary education. The kids range from 3-15 and live in the slum areas.
They have a dedicated team of volunteers and teachers, who provide informal education to destitute children and assist their transition into full-time education. AID Faridabad currently operates six schools (Paathshaala, Prabha, Chaitanya, Muskaan, Udaan & Disha) in the city and aims to create a profound impact on the community by equipping underprivileged children with the power of education.

So please donate generously to these kids in need and support this great cause.
