My Appeal

A society’s Destiny rests on how it treats its CHILDREN. And as Nelson Mandela has said, “Children are our greatest treasure, they are our future.” With this inspiring thought in our mind, we, a dedicated team of 6 individuals, holding a diverse industry experience & currently pursuing MBA from the University of Mumbai, are embarking on this life altering journey to raise funds for “at-risk” children’s education and health. For this noble purpose, we are collaborating with Salaam Bombay Foundation (SBF), an NGO which has been working towards the welfare of children since the year 2002. According to FAO estimates in ‘The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World, 34.7% of the children aged under five in India are stunted, while 20% suffer from wasting, meaning their weight is too low for their height. Malnourished children have a higher risk of death from common childhood illnesses such as diarrhoea, pneumonia, and malaria. On the Education front, at least 35 million children aged 6 - 14 years do not attend school. 53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate. THESE STARTLING FACTS REFLECT THE DIRE NEED TO SUPPORT THESE CHLDREN. THIS IS A HUMBLE REQUEST TO ALL THE POTENTIAL DONORS TO KINDLY DONATE AND HELP US REACH OUR TARGET. THIS FUND WILL BE FULLY UTILIZED TOWARDS THE WELFARE OF CHILDREN’S EDUCATION AND HEALTH BY SALAAM BOMBAY FOUNDATION. AFTERALL, A PERSON’S GREATNESS IS NOT IN WHAT HE HAS, RATHER IT IS IN WHAT HE GIVES.

Project Details

The long term implications of this pandemic have the potential to cripple affected communities. Once the need for social distancing subsides, we foresee a need for midterm and long term interventions to rehabilitate communities and build resilience to any further incidences.

Expected interventions include:
  • Upgradation of sanitation and hygiene facilities in communities such as low-income schools, Anganwadis, community spaces, hospitals, etc.
  • Health education, screening and awareness generation on WASH behaviours
  • Restoring livelihoods of daily wage earners and marginalized communities
  • Mental health support
  • Identification and skilling of community health volunteers
  • Upgradation of health facilities and infrastructure in government hospitals and public health centres.
  • Support of frontline workers including doctors, nurses, public health workers, sanitation workers, police personnel, etc.
  • Nutrition and education support for children to compensate for losses during periods of isolation or school closure.
  • Upgradation and installation of sanitation and hygiene facilities at public areas with high footfall like Railway stations and Bus stations along with awareness generation.
  • Measures to improve hygiene awareness and practices in high-density habitation like in urban slums
