Challenge

Sleep is one of the most important activities we do to boost the quality of all aspects of our lives. For about 10 years, Sphoorti children slept on floor as we were short on space as well as did not have resources to purchase beds for our children. For many children, getting proper amount of sleep has not just been an option. Without enough sleep, school-aged will be unable to learn at their full potential.

Solution

We need to give school-aged children tools to complete and succeed in their education. Providing bunk beds completes the picture. This campaign provides 80 two-tier bunk beds for 160 children. Importance of sleep and the effect on education: - Children under age 12 need at least 10 hours of sleep - Sleep deprivation can lead to obesity, hypertension, diabetes and heart diseases - Children suffering from sleep deprivation tend to be more hyperactive and experience ADHD-like symptoms

Long-Term Impact

This project provides long-term support 200 children allowing them to break out of illiteracy and poverty. It project brings improvement of children's health, awareness of their rights and makes them more employable in the long run.
