In order to improve awareness of Slum Children, we conduct various workshops on a regular basis like Menstrual, Personal Hygiene, Typhoid/Malaria prevention, Noise Pollution, Etiquette & Manners. Recently we started series of "Wonders of the Universe".
We encourage children to celebrate all Events & Festivals like Independence Day ,Republic Day, Holi, Diwali ,Eid, X Mas etc to bring awareness about our culture, tolerance towards all religion etc.
Slums are the breeding ground for Anti Social Activities. Our main aim is to keep children busy so that they don't get involved in it. Parents are too poor to pay for any extra curiculum activities so we start our Art and Craft classes during vacation.
We help widows overcome the trauma of losing the earning member of the family by helping them find an income generation opportunity, providing scholarship for the children, reimbursing medical bills & providing monthly ration to them.
Parents discourage girls from going for higher studies, stating financial crunch, reasoning that they will get married & higher education will not serve any purpose as they will be homemakers. We started conducting basic Beautician Classes so that the girls can earn & learn
We provide them ample opportunities to play indoor as well as outdoor sports. We provide them Carrom, Jig Saw puzzles to play during weekends & holidays. We enrolled 14 children for Basketball at YMCA, Andheri West. We support sportspersons like Marathon Runners, swimmers etc. from slums of Mumbai & tribal areas of Maharashtra.
Our children are born dancers.They don't miss any chance to dance. They have been dancing at Bhaidas Hall in Vile Parle West since past 5 years. They have won many prizes at Inter School Competitions.
Sometimes a moment of happiness is all that we want in our life and we try to create such happiness and smile on the faces of slum children by celebrating their birthdays on a monthly basis.
Most of the children have not stepped out of the slum in their life. We organise Picnics, Excursions, Parties for them from time to time besides visits to Corporate Offices/ Banks etc on an invitation.
