SELF HELP GROUP FOR SLUM CHILDREN and RAKHI SALE (22 August 2015):
A new initiative for making poor children financially sound to pursue their education, has been started. a Self Help Group called 'PANKH' is being formed for children above 14 years. These children will be taught different crafts and arts, and objects made by them will be put up on sale. The returns from these objects will be pooled into their Self-Help-Group, from where the children can pay their exam fees, coaching fees, buy books and stationary, to pursue their studies. With this initiative we hope, they will no longer be dependent on their parents for their academics, and will also learn how to handle money in life.
PANKH takes off on 22 August 2015 with the sale of Rakhis, ear rings, file folders, envelopes and flower vases made by the children at our Sunday projects UDAAN and at PARVARISH too. The sale will be held at 10 No Stop from 5pm-9pm everyday.
