Story


Hi, 
My name is Asha and I am raising funds for FSL-India which is working towards the rehabilitation and education of children found on the street. These children are from the families of migrant labourers, from different parts of the country. Due to unemployment and natural calamities, these families have migrated to different locations, in search of employment to sustain their livelihood. 

The children's education is severely impacted as they cannot go to school regularly and have to take care of their siblings while their parents go to work. They are also malnourished as the income brought in is insufficient for their needs. Some of the children spend their time begging for money and food, to supplement their income. 

 

The families live in interior areas where there is no proper transport or sanitary facilities, safe drinking water, and electricity. FSL-India works towards providing these families with basic education, as well as awareness on health and hygiene.  Our volunteers educate the children through informal methods so that they are able to enroll themselves in regular schools.


At present, there is no building in which to conduct the classes, which are conducted in tents. In summer, the temperature soars to more than 40 degrees and there is heavy rainfall in this area. We would like to purchase a vehicle which could be used for multipurpose activities, i.e conducting classes, transporting educational material, conducting health camps and taking the children on short field trips.

 

FSL-India is taking care of 50-60 children of the migrant community in Kundapur Taluk of Udupi District, Karnataka and we need Rs 1095000  to provide mobile education support, snacks, educational and play material, basic health checkups. Kindly support our cause by donating and sharing our fundraiser.
