Summary

Every year, winter stretches poor children & their families to a breaking point. The biting winters have arrived & brought more poverty and hardship. The children on streets & slums are not ready to fend off ruthless cold waves & temperatures falling as low as 3 degrees Celsius in the Dehradun valley. We distribute winter kits to our children containing thermals & blankets. Your contribution to our Winter Appeal can help bring some much-needed warmth & care. Help us survive this winter.

Challenge

The economic fallout of Covid has been massive. Families living in poverty now face the pressures of rising inflation and food insecurity. The fast-approaching winters in the Dehradun valley will compound the misery of the families living on the streets & slums of Dehradun. Children are the victims of this unprecedented crisis. It has already started to snow in the Himalayas & the children are not prepared to survive the harsh season. These children need warm clothes to fend off winter.

Solution

Aasraa provides children with the help they need to survive the harsh winter. Aasraa has launched a #WinterAppeal to ensure the children under its care are warm and well-fed through the peak winter months. Through the donations collected from this appeal, the children will receive winter care packs and food to keep them safe.

Long-Term Impact

Aasraa empowers slum and street children through education; education combined with vocational training, nutrition and healthcare. The 'Street to School' program is just the beginning. We believe our responsibility extends far beyond just education - we strive to provide them economic self-sustainability along with social integration into mainstream society. We envision our future generations to be strong, independent and gainfully employed.
