Thanks GGDonors- NewSetup @Our ChildLearningCenter

Inauguration of New Toilet facility
Inauguration of New Toilet facility

Season’s Greetings to all our Donors, in this New Academic Year, starting June 2019 onwards…

A new beginning, a new academic year, and a new life starts for our Tiny Tots, 2-5 years from the marginalized families of rag-pickers/daily laborers, in the slums of Rabale, Navi Mumbai.

Rains bring lots of hope to the mankind. So does the beginning of new academic year in lives of many at the bottom-of-the-pyramid, bereft of any formal education. They hope that at least their children should be educated and lead a decent life.

A new enthralling commitment starts in all of us in imparting the most-essential-education in any human’s life, that of EARLY EDUCATION, Free of Cost, to the under-privileged tiny-tots from the community around us. What more satisfaction can we get, than serving this community, for bringing in a bright future in our children.

Thanks to all our donors, we have built a new toilet for boys and girls. We have installed brand-new play-ground equipment from the most prestigious supplier in our country, hitherto not seen anywhere in these slums in the last several years. All these are possible because of your timely Donation….

We believe all children are born to ‘Play in groups, enjoy, live a care-free life first, then comes the basic learning from early education center’, to make them a good, committed and contributing citizen of the country. That is what we are providing to these tiny tots, like we all enjoyed in our childhood days.

As you are aware, Global Giving awarded Freedom For You Foundation the following FOUR prestigious badges recently:

  • EFFECTIVE ORGANIZATION
  • SITE-VISIT VERIFIED ORGANIZATION
  • VETTED ORGANIZATION
  • TOP-RANKED ORGANIZATION

This exemplary achievement, a few non-profits have been fortunate to receive the SEAL-of-Approval, gives needful COMFORT to our DONORS like you, that Your ‘hard-earned’ money is well-spent on the CAUSE close to your Heart.

The number of children at the start of this academic year itself has recorded the highest number, over 50, first time in the last several years. As you are aware, these are children of migrant laborers, who are basically from North Indian states like BIHAR, UTTAR PRADESH, RAJASTHAN, & MADHYA PRADESH, who go back to their villages for farming work during the 3 to 4 months of rainy season and generally return after the harvest of crops in Oct every year, and work as laborers, rag pickers in the slums of Navi Mumbai. We expect these numbers to swell by Oct/Nov time frame, when the migrant laborers return to the slums.

Our Humble Appeal....... from team Freedom For You Foundation !!

Your act of giving would TOUCH the lives of these children and help us provide all-round development in them.

We URGE YOU to contribute smaller amounts in recurring monthly donations & this would go a long way to meeting the ever increasing operating costs.

Freedom For You requests you to be our 'Champion' and spread our CAUSE with your like-minded friends and relatives too.

Your contributions for this noble project can be made here. Please do click on this link to TOUCH the lives of these tiny-tots and bring ‘light in the lives of these marginalized children’.

Every contribution, big or small is very important to us.

Your generous support & continued cooperation in this academic year, would go a long way in the lives of these tiny-tots

Hope this finds you all in good health & high spirits.

As you are aware, GlobalGiving awarded Freedom For You Foundation the following FOUR prestigious badges recently:

  • EFFECTIVE ORGANIZATION
  • SITE-VISIT VERIFIED ORGANIZATION
  • VETTED ORGANIZATION
  • TOP-RANKED ORGANIZATION

This exemplary achievement, a few non-profits have been fortunate to receive the SEAL-of-Approval, gives needful COMFORT to our passionate DONORS like you, that Your ‘hard-earned’ money is well-spent on the CAUSE close to your Heart.

We have closed the Child Learning Center for the current academic year on April 27, 2019. Out of our total Tiny-tots, 23 of them are graduating to Standard I (First standard), since they have crossed the nursery and KG classes in our play school. They have been granted admission in nearby schools, and we are happy to mention here that these marginalized children have been granted 50% concession in the annual fees because of our strong negotiations with the school management, and it would help the parents immensely in such a way that they would continue the education of their children.

Your timely donation in the recent past have helped us set-up this vital CLC; after the morning play-school hours, the same space is being utilized for community reach programs, by imparting sustainable livelihood skills, health and wellness programs etc. to the women folks from this marginalized community around our CLC.

As a part of our community enhancement and enrichment activity, in the noon session after the play school hours, we have started free Beauty Parlor course for about 40 young adolescent girls from these slum areas, some of them have given their Class X/XII examinations in Feb/Mar2019, and a few of them are from nearby tribal areas (they are known as Adivasis, the aborigines) with no schooling at all. For these kids and women, we are planning to start adult education with a special curriculum given by Rotary international under their TEACH program.

We have started basic tailoring course for mothers of our tiny-tots and other women from these marginalized community that will enable them to design and stitch nighties, petticoats, blouses, frocks for girls, etc. A few of them shall be absorbed in the nearby garment factory on full time or part-time basis.

A few donors have willingly come forward to donate shoes, water bottles, uniforms for the tiny tots in the next academic year starting June 2019.

Our Humble Appeal....... from team Freedom For You!!

Your generous donation would go a long way in providing all-round development of these tiny-tots through our early education in our Child Learning Centre.

We URGE YOU to contribute smaller amounts in recurring monthly donations & this would go a long way to meeting the ever increasing operating costs of our play school for our tiny tots from the rag-picking/daily laborer community.

Ever-increasing child friendly volunteer family
Ever-increasing child friendly volunteer family

SEASONS GREETINGS to all our well-wishers like you, and beloved family members too.

Freedom4U is PROUD to announce that GlobalGiving has recently, in Jan 2019, awarded the following FOUR prestigious badges to our non-profit:

  • EFFECTIVE ORGANIZATION
  • SITE-VISIT VERIFIED ORGANIZATION
  • VETTED ORGANIZATION
  • TOP-RANKED ORGANIZATION

This an exemplary achievement, only a very few non-profits have been fortunate to receive this SEAL-of-Approval, that gives COMFORT to DONORS like you, that Your ‘hard-earned & donated’ money is well-spent on the CAUSE close to your Heart.

Our tiny-tots, 2-5 years, from the marginalized background, are being empowered by imparting the most essential early-education in our slum-based Child Learning Center (CLC), supported by patrons & well-wishers like you. Not only we educate such deserving children year after year, we are working towards empowering this marginalized community, especially the women folks, by imparting sustainable livelihood skills so that they can be brought to the mainstream over the years.

Our nation celebrates “Educate the Girl Child” Week during the last week of January; we are happy to inform you that in our CLC, over 60% of tiny-tots are Girls; we are proud to be a part of this noble activity to strengthen the nation by laying a strong foundation for the future by imparting free education to these marginalized and deserving girl children from the slums.

Your timely donation in the recent past have helped us set-up this vital CLC; after the morning play-school hours, the same space is being utilized for community development activities, by imparting sustainable livelihood skills, health and wellness programs etc. to the women folks from this marginalized community around our CLC.

Recently, we conducted free eye check-up camps and gave away free spectacles to all detected with eye power, and carried out free cataract surgeries too, after cataract was detected in senior citizens from this community.

We had recently carried out a free heart-surgery on a 7 year young girl child, detected with abnormal valve function, in a near-by reputed hospital, saving the family of this girl an expense of Rs.250,000/- on the surgery.

Also, we are pleased to inform you that there are over 25 women registered for our basic tailoring course, which will enable them to design and stitch nighties, petticoats, blouses, frocks for girls, and basic level designing of ladies dresses etc.

                                                                                                                                                                                    

Besides, we continuously empower the adolescent girls & women in the community by conducting regular personal and menstrual hygiene camps through our lady doctors and experts in the field & promote use of ‘sanitary pads’, as a part of our Health and Wellness mission. We recently distributed free sanitary pads, sometimes donated to us or sponsored by donors.

During such health and wellness camps, we have distributed the re-usable clothes donated by employees from companies where we are the implementing partner for their CSR projects for engagement of marginalized and rural communities. These companies had promoted our Non-profit and collected reusable clothes, re-usable toys, stationery items etc. from their employees during the Christmas Joy-of-Giving week and it is encouraging to share with you all that we have received over-whelming response from these employees in that we collected almost new clothes and toys from these happy donors.

Our Humble Appeal....... from team Freedom For You!!

Your generous donation would go a long way in providing all-round development of these tiny-tots through our early education in our Child Learning Centre.

A monthly recurring donation from you, however small always help us in better planning our fixed monthly expense. We URGE YOU to contribute smaller amounts in recurring monthly donations & this would go a long way to meeting the ever increasing operating costs of our play school for our tiny tots from the rag-picking/daily laborer community.
