  • Description

    Description

    We are a non- profit organisation that works towards the upliftment of the weaker sections of the society. Our main motive is to provide opportunities to children for their overall development.
    We got registered in 2016 and at that time we worked with various slum kids in Dehradun. We went to their slums and gave knowledge and make them learn various things by different activities and workshops.

    Since Jan 2018, we have hosted various volunteers from all over the globe, and they have helped us in our project.
    Now, we are working with slum kids and they regularly come for their evening classes (It's like an after school support programme) in which we assist them in solving their queries and volunteers take various skill classes.
    like:- Dance, Art&Craft, Music, English Speaking, etc.

    Other than this we work with children in their projects to enhance their skills. We also work with the kids by organising workshops and sometimes fete(or fair) and other events with their help, which enhances their creative and analytical thinking. Other than this; it helps them become a leader, a team person, a coordinator, a risk taker, a smart worker and a good communicator.
    Our children have their own projects too.
    Like Manish and Amit initiate their Children bank, in which all children can open their account and then deposit money. It creates the habit of saving in children and Manish and Amit can learn Accounting, Book Keeping and how to handle Customers.
    Other than bank, some children have small shop.
    Kanchan and Poonam took initiative for their small shop and took loan from the Children Bank for their shop.
    And, Rohit and Aman have their YouTube channel.
    Now they are planning to put videos of organization and their own songs on that YouTube channel.
    By these projects, they learn different Management skills and they become a better Team Person.

    Help

    We need volunteers who can help us in our projects and organization.

    We are working on learning of children and supporting their school.
    So volunteers should have a positive attitude towards children.

    You can help children in evening classes, take english class and some other workshops like Dance, Music and Art&Craft, etc. and can also assist in doing their homework .

    If you have skills of Videography and Photography, it will be great for us. It helps us to document all the things and children are also happy to see themselves on the screen. Children also run their YouTube channel, so if you have editing skills you can help us in that too. 

    You can also help us in making our website better and you can also write content for our Social Media Page and help us to make proposals.
