Few weeks back I received a message from an old friend Kalpana V, that her 10 year old daughter, had heard about the work my foundation, Eksaath, is doing work with girls in sports. And she wanted to support Eksaath. This was one of most inspiring things I have experienced in my life. That a 10 year old could think of helping other little girls. She is in the Girl Scouts in US and with the support of other members in her team, she raised Rs 20,000. Plus clothing for children as well. The discussion with the young girl and her mother, happened over few weeks from July to August 2017.
As parents the best thing we can do for this world is to raise caring children. I met the young girl, in August and had an opportunity to interact with her. And she is an absolutely delightful human being. I am sure she will do more wonderful things in the future.
Eksaath Foundation thanks her for this initiative and God bless her with joy and success in everything that she does. Ps: Name of the child has been not mentioned to protect privacy, as requested by the mother.
Eksaath donated 3 PCs to a low income school in Mumbai. The school has some 835 children, with 50% girls. The PCs will be used in the school lab. Thanks to our donors, Dr R.W and Mrs Dr P.R.W (They wish to remain anonymous). Dr R.W got these PCs fixed and made it fully functional. And then bought new keyboards to go with each PC. Eksaath cannot him thank enough. If you wish to donate, please contact us.
Eksaath Foundation raised Rs 14,000 to buy sports wear for school girls who play sports. We closed this initiative in March 2017. The girls come from low income background and for them playing sports is something pretty amazing. This was possible due to our wonderful donors – MV Priyank, Parvin Kaur Latamba and Kevin Dasilva. The need was to enable the girls to wear something formal when they went to compete. And they can do this because of our three donors. Thank you so much. And thanks to the principle Veena ji for putting this all together.

Campaigned and gave clothing worth Rs 35,000 to needy women (parents) at a low income school in Dharavi. The clothing was in very good condition and very wearable. Idea is to support women and girls in whatever way possible. Most often girls and mothers get denied basic necessities, because they are well girls and mothers.
Thank you to the donors – Lata Subramanian, Linah Baliga, Chandrakant Shetty. You made a lot of moms very happy.
Eksaath is working on more such ideas that can support girls at school. And trying to raise more clothing. If you have any ideas or wish to donate material that girls can use, please contact us.
