Challenge

The Kerala floods - a calamity of severe nature has claimed 400 lives so far while displacing lakhs of people. Innocent children are the worst affected. Many children along with their families are still put up at relief camps. Some are able to return to their homes, but are left heart-broken to see that their favourite story books, school bags and other prized possessions have been washed away. This project hopes to help children get back to their schools and to learning.

Solution

We are doing our bit by donating school bags and stationery items like notebooks, pencils, colours, storybooks and colouring books to the affected children and contribute towards setting up library or providing equipment in Government schools from some of the most affected areas in Central part of Kerala . This project will also extent some support to students undergoing higher education. This will ensure that the calamity does not get in the way of our children's Education.

Long-Term Impact

Affected children currently stationed in flood relief camps who have lost their school bags and books will find the contribution very useful. New bags and books will give them a sense of normalcy when they return to their homes and schools. Support to affected schools will help rebuilding and restarting schools in flood-ravaged areas. These efforts, in the long run, will ensure that children continue their schooling / higher education and learning by helping them tide over the disaster.
