Provide bedding for 300 visually challenged kids

Challenge

These 300 children are from rural areas. Most of them are completely visually challenged and some have partial eyesight. The bedding we provide them now has become very old. Their parents are unable to afford even these basic needs as they are from low-income families. They lack financial stability. Due to this, even the basic need of having good bedding is a distant dream for them.

Solution

Through this project, we aim to provide new beds, pillows and blankets to 300 visually challenged children from rural areas. This will help in fulfilling their dream of having their own personal bedding. With this, they will be able to rest well and have a good night's sleep. Their parents will also be relieved of the tension of not being able to provide even this basic necessity to their children. Their poor financial background will not be a barrier to these children anymore.

Long-Term Impact

Having new, clean, good quality bedding will help these visually challenged children rest well at night. This will in turn increase their concentration power and reading capacity. It will help them excel in education, sports and all other activities they indulge in. Due to the improvement of all these factors, they will be able to transform into dignified, self-reliant individuals who will know the importance of basic needs and will strive to provide the same for their kids in future.
