Challenge

An unprecedented 68.5 million people are forced to flee as of 2018; 50% of them are children! As for these children,while the physical body heals itself over time,their childhood remains broken and are at high risk of suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depressive disorders. Yet, all what we do is watch the crises unfold at the comfort of our homes- live! There exists a growing inertia of apathy-we are disinterested or unaware or indifferent towards the reality of millions.

Solution

Letters of Love provides a platform for anybody irrespective of age,gender,religion & nationality to directly make a difference to global refugee crisis through letters.We deliver handwritten letters to ten thousands of refugee children on New Year as tokens of hope,love & solidarity,along with other psychosocial support such as pen-pals,toys, educational resources,art workshops etc.These empower them with emotional support,global exposure & help them form an optimistic vision for their future.

Long-Term Impact

The project will empower 10000 refugee children with a healthy emotional & mental state of being conducive to further learning and cognitive development in schools & homes.These children will fare better in schools,form sincere social relationships & use free time creatively.Meanwhile,our educational & leadership programs for 3000+ students in privileged settings raise awareness & hone changemakers in classrooms in 17 countries,implementing around 20 sub-projects that directly benefit refugees.
