India is one of the fastest growing economies of the world but unfortunately the problem of poverty still persists predominantly with 63% of the population dwelling in slums and villages.
A big percentage of kids, who are the future of our country, are stuck in the vicious circle of poverty, child labour, begging and rag-picking, making their own future bleak. Hence, they are the biggest sufferers and that’s why we want to come out and provide these kids the childhood they deserve.
Story Behind Little Hearts
It took just one incident to move us and start “Little Hearts”. One day, I, with my friends, went for a weekend out in the city and while we were returning back we came across two street children with runny noses, selling roses and bare foot. That sight never left my mind. In the scorching heat and the burning roads, they moved around with their little feet with mud clinging and small cuts on their feet. This was a condition, NO ONE EVER should come across. That is when we decided to start “Little Hearts”, a subset of which is the “SLIPPER DISTRIBUTION CAMPAIGN”.
The use of slippers is underestimated. These slippers will not only provide protection from the sun and injuries but also from intestinal parasitic infections, worms, anaemia and tetanus. Apart from the physical protection, slippers also provide a sense of dignity, which every kid deserves.
While food stuffs and medicines are short lived and will run out in few days or maximum a few weeks, slippers are such items that cannot be afforded by all and yet will last for a minimum of 5-6 months and even more.
We are initiating the drive with 2 cities, Jaipur & Delhi, and planning to move on to more cities and more diverse campaigns. Let these street children feel that they too are a part of our society. Gift them, make them happy & also, pave way to their brighter future taking one step at a time! Imagine, the kid you meet at the longest signal towards work, how happy she/he would be when presented a new pair of slippers?
Providing slippers to 2000 street kids to protect them from fatal diseases & give them the childhood they deserve!
Why believe in our project?
We have already initiated the drive, but your support to cover more street children is indispensable. We have already successfully conducted campaigns earlier, and we believe to have brought an impact in their lives and smile on their face. Our core team consists of doctors, hence we understand the health needs of kids and keep healthy & hygiene at top priority of our list.
With every progress made and milestone achieved, we will transparently update all stakeholders about any advancement.
