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 source of income , study material and other prized possessions have been washed away. This project hopes to help children get back to their schools and families to restart their occupation.

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 support to students to meet educational needs & support families who lost all income sources to buy cattle or fishing net or boat or to start small business.

Long-Term Impact

Affected families who have lost every thing at home including study material of children and occupation source will find the contribution very useful. Bags and books will give children a sense of normalcy.Support to affected schools will help rebuilding schools & assistance to families will help them have an income source. These efforts, in the long run, will ensure that children continue their schooling & families to have livelihood helping them tide over the disaster.
